rsync: exclude more than two files/directories


Hya

Whoever wants to exclude more than two files/directories using rsync,
use -exclude twice or more.
rsync --exclude=xxx --exclude=yyy

I was a true idiot, tried to something like --exclude=xxx,yyy --exclude=xxx;yyy with single/double quote for several hours.

Enjoy happy penguins

cheers

Nice tip. I usually use:

Code:
--exclude-from=/path/to/.rsyncignore
