How can I extract from the output of find . -name "*.c" -print only filenames in the current directory?

Why does it always include the subdirectories?

Need help with getting aorund that.

If you need files (or folders) from the current directory that end with .c, simply do:

ls *.c

If you need find to only look at your current directory, use:

find . -name "*.c" -maxdepth 1
