Listing Files#

“Listing” files can refer to two separate types of tasks: searching and enumerating.

Searching for files means you don’t yet know which files you’re looking for. For example, you might be looking for something you suspect exists on the filesystem but can’t pinpoint yet. It is also useful to work out and validate assumptions about which paths you care about, for example during prototyping.
