You can also locate files (including data files and configuration files) with the "locate" command. You have to be running the "slocate" program periodically, but it's a VERY fast way to find files. It just scans your mounted partitions and creates a database list of EVERY file on your system.
Takes a while to run. (that's why it is typically scheduled to automatically start at night or the next time your machine boots), so some people turn this feature OFF.
Only dead fish go with the flow....
Hmmm, what did I miss?
