I found this script online and I made a few tweaks to it but it appears that it only searches the current directory. Is there a way to make it search the entire file system. Here is the script:
pattern = raw_input("Enter the file name to search for:\n")
commandString = "find " + pattern
commandOutput = commands.getoutput(commandString)
findResults = string.split(commandOutput, "\n")
for file in findResults:
print "There was a problem in searching"
