Which is your OS?

With AIX tar it's "-L"

tar -cvf tarname.tar -L file-list

With Solaris tar it's "-I"

tar cvf tarname.tar -I file-list

Please note: No leading dash "-" before "cvf" on Solaris!

HPUX tar doesn't have such an option.

Yeah - thank you - I used to be on Solaris now on AIX - did not know that tar was different on these two
