B.9. Searching and Sorting

You can use the following tools to search and sort files:


egrep

Extended version of grep.


fgrep

Searches files for literal words.


find

Searches the system for filenames.


grep

Searches files for text patterns.


locate

sort

Sorts a file (use -n for numeric sorting and -u to eliminate duplicates).


strings

Searches binary files for text patterns.


uniq

Reports or filters duplicate lines in a file.


unzip

Extracts files from a Zip archive.


zgrep

Searches compressed files for text patterns.
