I have to navigate through a series of directories containing software installers. I've written a small bash function that gets me to the main folder that contains all of the builds, but the file names of the sub-directories are ridiculously long.
The main folder is named "release" and contains directories with names like "Build 10 - 0.0.3580 - ecb871131857710a". I read William Shotts' Jr's book "The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction" and it was very good and thorough, but it didn't really give me any insight into solving this problem and my co-workers don't seem to know of a simpler way either.
Can anyone give me any suggestions or general methods that I could research to help solve this problem? I'm not looking for a script or for someone to give me the full on answer, but a little push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
