drwxr-x---  4 virtualftp virtualftp 4096 May  5 12:45 Marvel
drwxr-xr-x  2 root       root       4096 May  6 12:34 users

I want a tarball of each folder seperately like:

Marvel.tar.gz
iWatch.tar.gz
etc

Would this work?

#!/bin/bash
for dir in */
    do dir=`echo $dir | tr -d '/'`
    echo $dir
    tar czf $dir.tar.gz $dir
done
 

I've attempted this:

tar -czf -f !.tar.gz !
-bash: !.tar.gz: event not found

So please help me here im lost. I dont know perl that well. I understand the code and the logic. Just dont know
the syntax

i understand what your saying but i want only directories with the "com" word within its directory name. So the directories listed:

site1.domain.com
site2.domain.com
site3.domain.com
site3.domain.com

etc.  Would this do the trick?


#!/bin/bash

for dir in */

  do 

   if[$dir |grep -e \<com>\="com"]

    then

      dir=`echo $dir | tr -d '/'`

      echo $dir

      tar czf /newlocation/$dir.tar.gz $dir

   fi

done

however what im looking for is a single tar line command that would tar all directores ending in .com to there own individual tar balls without runnning a script.
ex:
tar czf /tmp/results/$1.tar  *'com/'

tar: /tmp/results/.tar: Cannot open: No such file or directory

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

why don't you save the script in a file, make it executable (with chmod +x filename) and then call it with arguments

Solution:
[root@testWeb user]# ls | grep com | while read line;

> do

> tar czf /tmp/$line.tar.gz $line

> done

[root@testWeb user]# ls /tmp

test1.com.tar.gz   test2.com.tar.gz   test3.com.tar.gz

ls -A -d -1 */ |  awk -F'/' '{ print $1 }' | xargs -I {} tar czpf /tmp/'{}.tar.gz' '{}' && rm -Rf */

will tarball each dir in the current folder in its own archive and remove the source folder
