Re: tar question



Thank you
it works
 
how about untar
 
tar cvf file.tar -T selectfile.txt
 
inside the selectfile.txt
 
eg:
 
/var/www/html/version3/abc.html
/var/www/html/version3/image/abc.jpg
/var/www/html/version3/cgi-bin/abc.cgi
 
 
how can I untar it
 
as all inside in /var/www/html instead of /var/www/html/version3
 
Thank you again

Check out the -T or --files-from= option.
Something like: (Double check the syntax!)

tar zcv -T file.txt -f elect-file.tar.gz

You will probable find the tar info file more helpful then the tar
man page.
