find command in linux

In Linux, finding a file through a command line (SHELL) is faster than on its GUI. But there is a check.

find is the command to find the files in Linux.

$] find /place/to/search -name filename.extn
$] find /place/to/search -name “*.txt”

If you want to find the files between two dates, here is the command 

$] find /place/to/search -newermt 20160701 ! -newermt 20170731
the above command find the files between 1st July 2016 to 31st July 2017.
