Need to archive a directory structure while completly ignoring ".svn" directories
Posted on 2008-10-13
I want to archive a directory structure (FYI: checked out from Subversion) where a hidden directory ".svn" appears at every level of the directory structure BUT I DO NOT want this directory (or its contents) to appear in the archive file..
To state it another way, for clarity, I want to archive all files and directories in a specified directory and ignore directories (and contained files) named ".svn"
FYI: I am using ubuntu linux 8.04
Many thanks for your help,
