Okay, I'm trying to create a tar file from my shell, from the directory containing the directory I want to archive, using this command:
tar -cp bluebounty.tar bluebounty
The file I want to archive is bluebounty
I'm using the -p option because I want to preserve permissions
When the command is run, my shell spits out a barrage of strange characters and fails to create the file.
Any ideas why?
