Fd - blowing my mind!

OK, save-places in emacs is not working, this is not the issue, there are a lot of other things in play.

So I thought I would use fd to find the locations of the places files in my home:

l pl*
.rw-r--r-- xircon xircon 9.7 KB Mon Apr  5 12:02:59 2021  places
.rw-r--r-- xircon xircon 9.7 KB Mon Apr  5 09:23:52 2021  places-old
.rw-r--r-- xircon xircon   0 B  Mon Apr  5 11:55:35 2021  placesp

fd places
places-old
placesp

locate places | grep emacs-term
/home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/places
/home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/places-old
/home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/placesp

Why doesn’t places appear in the found files. I am going back to bed :rofl:

This gets weirder:

mdcd testxx
touch places
touch places1
touch places2
touch places2
touch places3

fd places
places
places1
places2
places3
