The Windows platform does not provide a command line search program like the Unix find command. This is a limited form of the Unix find command for the Windows platform. The format of the command is as:

jfind pathlist options

where option may be: 


-name pattern

finds files whose name matches pattern


prints the pathname for files found

-type d|f

find directories or files


jfind C:\MYDIR -name ".*AUSTIN.*" -print

This command is useful when used to pipe data to the jbackup command, e.g.

jfind C:\accounts -print | jbackup -f C:\my_backups\my_accounts.bak
