Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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???
