I need to get around the requirement of --exclude=* to have all the
parent directories of the files and directories that are to be
included. So given the file..
I need to include
I could just include the entire directory structure , but
alternatively just include the needed paths. So the question is how
can I extract every parent directory of this path?
I tried writing a recursive routine that accepts /startdirectory as
$1 and the pathname of filetobecopied as $2. Here is latest
incarnation, which doesn't work right, of course.
if [ $rootpath -ef $subpath ]
echo "end of recursion"
