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

$tar /home/foo/*

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?
