Hi list, I've googled to search an aswer but no one match mine. I want to tar all files on a directory without include any other directory, I've tried with --exclude but no hope, any suggestion ??? Thanks...
I dom something similar to what you ask. What I do is tar a directory and all it's contense EXCEPT one diectory. It goes something like this:
tar -zcf name.tgz --exclude MP3 dirname/
I'm tarring a dir. and excluding the dir MP3 and it's files. I'm sure you will be able to expand on this.
Use man tar to see all the switches.
Sounds find, but wouldn't
get this job done without including subdirs, since there's no -R involved?
I read the OP's question as "I want to tar all the files in a directory without including any other directories..." which would mean "any (sub)directories within the directory would not be placed in the tarball", right?
