I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you may use find and you can specify the parent dir to search under it:

find </pathmame> -name "bla.*"

you may want to have more criteria to specify while searching. Also, you may want to specify other actions other than default (listing files names). For that please the man page of find:
