|Re: [PLUG] find all files with non ascii characters in a directory|
Michael LazinI have created a chinese named empty file in my home directory for testing purposes using the touch command. I would like my find string to find not just chinese, but all non-ascii characters. Can anyone help me with this? Thanksthis results in the following error:I am interested in using the find command to recursively find all non-ascii character named files in a directory. I found this article in stack overflow:based on the reported best answer I tried:
find . -type f | grep "[\x80-\xFF]"
grep: Invalid range end
