this isn't really bsd specific but i still need help with it. im writing a backup script a clip from that script is this:
find /usr/local/www/data-dist/ -name config.php > /usr/local/backupScript/include find /usr/local/www/data-dist/ -name ClientFiles >> /usr/local/backupScript/include tar cvf /usr/local/backupScript/files/www-client-files.tar -I /usr/local/backupScript/include /usr/local/www/data-dist obviously im creating an include file from a directory. when the tar runs, it correctly adds all the files in the include file. but once that is finished, for some reason tar then goes back and adds all the files that are in the /usr/local/www/data-dist directory, even the ones in the include file. i was under the impression that the -I command would add ONLY the files that are listed in the include. why is it adding those and then after finishing that, adding all the others? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
