don't want points, here, but quote or escape the * if you want to be on the safe side

if your tar version does not have the --exclude option as in many versions of gnutar, you can use find to generate the file list for tar

Also if you have list of files to exclude , you can use -X option.
Ex.
tar czf html.tar.gz -X exclude.txt html

Open in new window
