I want to use the locate command with regex but i am not able to use it.
I want to find
pip file which is in /usr folder. i am trying this
locate -r "/usr/*pip"
To use globbing characters in your query you shouldn’t specify regex (as you do with
-r option), so just do:
From the man page:
If –regex is not specified, PATTERNs can contain globbing characters.
If any PATTERN contains no globbing characters, locate behaves as if
the pattern were *PATTERN*.
