I have tried man and info for tar, as well as google
and this site, but just cant find what i need.
I want to make a tar and exclude 2 directory
trees recursively. Everything i've seen says to use
--exclude, but that doesn't seem to work for me.
Anyway, doesn't that option only work with patterns?
And isn't it impossible to express a dir tree recursively
thru a pattern?
Also have the option to make a big exclude list, but
these are directories with many small files, and that
seems like a big waste of power.
Here is a link to the script i'm trying to use, everything
works except that tar won't excluded the directory trees:
Thanks in advance
