Find man ubuntu
Each page argument given to man is normally the name of a program, utility or function. The manual page associated with each of these arguments is then found and displayed. A section , if provided, will direct man to look only in that section of the manual. The table below shows the section numbers of the manual followed by the types of pages they contain. Exact rendering may vary depending on the output device.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Check the Version of Ubuntu from the Terminal and Unity

By default, locate does not check whether files found in database still exist but it does require all parent directories to exist if the database was built with --require-visibility no. If no match was found or a fatal error was encountered, locate exits with status 1.
Errors encountered while reading a database are not fatal, search continues in other specified databases, if any. This is the opposite of --wholename. If more than one --database option is specified, the resulting path is a concatenation of the separate paths. An empty database file name is replaced by the default database. A database file name - refers to the standard input. Note that a database can be read from the standard input only once. This causes broken symbolic links to be omitted from the output.
This is the default behavior. The opposite can be specified using --nofollow. This causes broken symbolic links to be reported like other files.
This is the opposite of --follow. This option is designed for interoperability with the --null option of GNU xargs 1. The opposite can be specified using --basename.
NOTES The order in which the requested databases are processed is unspecified, which allows locate to reorder the database path for security reasons. This is the reason for the impractical default --follow option and for the confusing set of --regex and --regexp options. The short spelling of the -r option is incompatible to GNU locate , where it corresponds to the --regex option.
Use the long option names to avoid confusion.

By default find prints the name of the located files but it can also perform commands on these files. Hopefully locate and updatedb will be covered on their own page in the near future. You would run updatedb before using locate, which relies on the data produced by "updateDB". The syntax for using find is: find [-H] [-L] [-P] [path
The find utility shall detect infinite loops; that is, entering a previously visited directory that is an ancestor of the last file encountered. When it detects an infinite loop, find shall write a diagnostic message to standard error and shall either recover its position in the hierarchy or terminate. The following options shall be supported by the implementation: -H Cause the file information and file type evaluated for each symbolic link encountered on the command line to be those of the file referenced by the link, and not the link itself. If the referenced file does not exist, the file information and type shall be for the link itself.
