RE: Help using find command



How about:

 

find . -regex '.*\(odt\|ods\|sxc\)$' | tar -c -T - | gzip > /root/openoffice.tar.gz

then

confirm with

# tar –ztvf /root/openoffice.tar.gz

Subject: Help using find command

 

Hi list,

 

I am trying to tar up all the openoffice files on my server using the

find command. The command I have come up with only tars the last file

found by the find command.

 

# find . -regex '.*\(odt\|ods\|sxc\)$' -exec cvzf

/root/openofficefiles.tar.gz {} \;

 

Can someone tell me how to make this work? (I realize that there are

more openoffice extensions.)

 

Thanks,

 

Rob
