I have been searching for a command that will return files from the current directory which contain a string in the filename. I have seen
find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*string*" -print
It will find all files in the current directory (delete
maxdepth 1 if you want it recursive) containing "string" and will print it on the screen.
If you want to avoid file containing ':', you can type:
find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*string*" ! -name "*:*" -print
If you want to use
grep (but I think it's not necessary as far as you don't want to check file content) you can use:
ls | grep touch
But, I repeat,
find is a better and cleaner solution for your task.
