I would like to do a search for a particular file, "program-nav" in the the current directory and all its subdirectories. I am not sure that the name is correct, so perhaps I would like do a search on all file names that have the word "program" in it, i.e., using the wildcard character. Can someone show me the quickest way to do it?

Thanks.

find .  -type f -name "*program*"

If you don't know if it's uppercase or lowercase (or mixed) use the case-insensitive test "-iname" instead of "-name":

find .  -type f -iname "*program*"
