How do I perform file search in linux sorting the output?



  • Also see: Man page for find.

    This could be a long list, terminate the output using Ctrl-C

    This does a find in the current directory and sorts the output using the ASCII sort order.

    $ find | LC_ALL=C sort
    .
    ./.filec
    ./.filed
    ./filea
    ./fileb
    ./int
    ./test
    ./test/perf
    

    Notice the difference without the ASCII sort. The dot files are not listed first.

    $ find | sort
    .
    ./filea
    ./fileb
    ./.filec
    ./.filed
    ./int
    ./test
    ./test/perf
