`find' is a program which searches a directory tree to find a file or group of files. It walks the directory tree and reports all occurences of a file matching the user's specifications.

`locate' scans one or more databases of filenames and displays any matches. `updatedb' builds the database used by `locate'.

`xargs' builds and executes command lines by gathering together arguments it reads on the standard input. Most often, these arguments are lists of file names generated by `find'.
