http://unix.stackexchange.com – The main problem is my directory has many files with uppercase (e.g. Foobar.txt, FooBar.txt, even FOOBAR.txt). And I find it messy to find the files by exactly typing it (if I know the exact filenames, why would I use find?). So I want to type just foobar and want all three files in result Also, I am using * both of the side of my string to match any number of characters preceding and appending in the file name. I want an alias or function that does this. (HowTos)
