What does it mean when you dream about finding something?

Finding an object in a dream often symbolizes discovering something in our lives—finding our sense of self-identity; finding our place. The dream might also be drawing on the meaning of common idioms, such as to “find out,” “find one’s bearings,” or “fault finding.”

find

[fīnd]
(industrial engineering)
The therblig representing the mental reaction which occurs on recognizing an object at the end of the elemental motion search; now seldom used.

Find

An external DOS/Windows command that provides a "case sensitive" search for text in a file. Find is also used to locate files based on the text within the file name (see filters and pipes). Grep is the Mac/Unix/Linux counterpart to Find; however, there are third-party grep utilities for Windows as well (see grep).

The following example locates all the batch files in the current folder that contain the text XCOPY:
find "xcopy" *.bat
