Say the folder structure looks like this:
. |--folder1 |--subfolder1 |--subfolder2 |--subfolder2 |--folder2 |--subfolder1 |--subfolder2 |--subfolder2 |--folder3 |--subfolder1 |--subfolder2
I would like to find all files in
subfolder2 only. I know I can just do this:
$ find . -type f |grep subfolder2
But was wondering if
find comes with a option to include/exclude given directories?
Just name all the directories you want to search.
find */subfolder2 -type f
Or for a completely arbitrary directory structure, something like this…
find $(find . -name subfolder2 -type d) -type f
