In this lab, we'll use the find command and its options to find all sorts of files on our system. Once we have found certain files, we'll use the execute function on them to run commands that will further display useful information about those files. Then, we'll use the grep command to show the contents of files, display additional context for what is found, show what lines those instances occur on, and more.
