I was trying to search in
man find, and I would like to know what's going on.
$ man find | grep Like Like -lname, but the match is case insensitive. This is a GNU Like -name, but the match is case insensitive. Like -path, but the match is case insensitive. Like -regex, but the match is case insensitive. Like -name, but the contents of the symbolic link are matched $ man find | grep "\-name" find / \! -name "*.c" -print find /usr/src -name CVS -prune -o -depth +6 -print find /usr/src -name CVS -prune -o -mindepth 7 -print $ man find | grep "name," and there is no such group name, then gname is treated as a group and there is no such user name, then uname is treated as a user
What's going on? How come I can see lines that contain
-name, but I don't get those results if I search for
name, and why does that show different things? I imagine it has to do with some “metadata” in man page not shown in the terminal, but I don't know.
