ls -lart | grep -i file

let's say I have 100's of files that end in the file path:

.../file103
.../file.32
.../file
.../file.dat

etc.

I'm wanting to look for just "file<end of line>", something like this:

ls -lart | grep -i file\013  (use, like a character code for the EOF).

I like to run a command:
find . >files

to get a list of files in a directory - and do a search on those files...

cat files | grep -i \\/file\013

I just need to know how include the eol in my search.  I've used it before, but I forgot.
