Re: mv and exlude list

Hi, maybe some scripting genius gonna help me :D

I need to move some file from one directory to other with some exclusions.
Ex: move files from "/data/product/" to "/data/archives/2005" while
the "*.dat" file/dirs stay in the right place.

$mv /data/product/* !(/data/product/*.dat) /data/archives/2005

Try:

	find /data/product -name "*.dat" -prune -exec mv \{\} \
	/data/archives/2005 \;

You might try using "cp" instead of "mv", just to test it.  If it works,
then "find /data/product -name "*.dat" -exec rm -rf \{\} \;" to delete
the files.  Note that the target directory MUST exist before you run
the first command.
