What does it mean when you dream about finding something?

(1) To search for text within the current document or Web page. Control-F in Windows and Command-F in the Mac open a search box for entering text. Pressing Enter starts the search and each subsequent press continues the search.

(2) (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).
