WHEREIS: Search For Files

whereis searches a directory tree or the entire disk for specified files.

whereis filespec

Searches the entire disk for files matching filespec. filespec can contain ? and * wildcards.

whereis directory filespec

Recursively searches directory and all its subdirectories for files matching filespec. filespec can contain ? and * wildcards.

whereis can take a long time when searching a large disk. Restricting the search by specifying a directory can cut it way down.
