i asked this question before but i didn't get an answer that would do what i need ..
i have a very huge directory ... and i want to zip this huge directory with excluding some (directories) .. i want to exclude some directories not file ... i repeat .. excluding directories .. not files ..
how possible is it?
well .. i didn't find it yet possible .. i knew how to exclude only one file ..
tar -cvf file.tar temp/ --exclude temp/CASEtest.sh
this would only exclude CASEtest.sh
how can i exclude all files in that directory that has .sh ? or even exclude two files ?
tar -cvf file.tar temp/ --exclude temp/*.sh
but it didn't work ..
tar -cvf file.tar temp/ --exclude temp/CASEtest.sh --exclude temp/shell.sh
please don't tell me : man tar
cause i did it more than once with no use ..
Unfortunately, this solutions excludes all proc (and backup) directories on the system. How can I achieve that *only* the /proc is excluded from the tar file and *not* (for example) the /home/rdk/proc directory???
