Hi all,

I m not sure is this the right place to post this topic but i am having some trouble to actually tar a huge file by excluding some undesired files inside.

i had try some thing like:

1. creating a file call xfiles which contains all the files and folders that i wanna exclude.

2. then i call the command:
tar -cvf jum10.tar jum10 --exclude-file=/tcms/html/xfiles
PS:my pwd is /cms/html

some how this command works without excluding the files i specified.

anything i had missed out?>

i even tried with few more command like tar -cvfX .. but all not working..
can any experts in unix help up?
