I am new to Unix and want to know the unix equivalent for the windows find command?

In otherwords, on Unix/Solaris 8 if I issue a command that displays text to the screen--On unix how do I:

1. Pass that output to another command?
2. What command will filter the results to only display lines with text ??

For example on Windows I would issue  the command:

            netstat | find ":5605"

To find only those connections on port 5605.

I would like the syntax for doing the same thing on Solaris 8.

That would be the 'grep' command (get regular expression and print).  grep can search for complex expressions in its input.  But in your case you are looking for a simple string:

            netstat | grep ":5605"


Note that Unix has its own 'find' command that does something very different - it searches for files in the file system that match certain criteria.

The 'find' in UNIX is like the windoze 'DIR /S /B'
