Find - Excluding multiple Directories w/o showing files within
Object: Create backup file of chosen directory with 'tar'.
I am trying to write a bash script using 'find' to produce an input file to 'tar'.
The line that creates the input file is below.
This does exclude the directories I don't want in the current directory and creates the file but it includes all the individual file names also.
I've also tried to use -path in the above with the same results.
The line below creates the correct format but, of course, includes the directories that I don't want.
find . -type d | sort > /home/rick/Desktop/b1-include-file
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
You're passing no selection criteria to -print: everything that isn't pruned gets printed.
You want `-type d` before the -print.
SOLVED: :cool: Thanks jthill that fixed it!
