Weeks ago I tried this *without* the --exclude flags and
overwrote DOT file that I didn't want to. Iust rechecked this
use of rsync, saving important files from my work server
elseswhere, and see that some files or directories are being
listed and copied over. IDoes anything obvious jump out here?
rsync -Cptuvaz -n -e "ssh -i /home/kline/.ssh/tao_XXXYYYZZZ-id" \
--exclude /home/kline/.zlogin \
--exclude /home/kline/.zshrc \
--exclude /home/kline/.zhistory.* \
--exclude /home/kline/.ctwrm \
--exclude /home/kline/.mozilla \
--exclude /home/kline/.evolution \
--exclude /home/kline/4zip/ \
--exclude '/home/kline/www/' \

Hope this might help.
From man rsync:
"global include/exclude patterns are anchored at the "root of the transfer"
in man rsync look for: "INCLUDE/EXCLUDE PATTERN RULES"
and "ANCHORING INCLUDE/EXCLUDE PATTERNS"
if [ $? = 0 ]
echo "rsync transfer went okay: tao to ethos"
echo "rsync failed to ethos from /home/kline"|mail [EMAIL PROTECTED]
