I want to find all the .c, .h, and .cpp files in a directory tree.  I can find all the .c and .h files by using the following...

find . -name "*\.[ch]"

how do i modify this to find the .cpp files as well?

Thanks,
Mike.

find . -name "*\.[ch]" -o -name "*.cpp"

o is for or.  You can use -or on some systems if you want.
