RSYNC and dot files


I currently use rsync (with the options ruvt) to backup my home directory and have the output redirected to a log. The problem is it also copies the dot files. Is there anyway to stop rsync to stop copying the dotfiles and just copy all the other files instead?

Just add an exclude option:
--exclude ".*"
