Hi Loris,

I believe you will need to add a trailing slash to each line to get the contents within.

Subject: Question on --include-from option.

Hello list,

I am running rsync 2.5.5 on some Solaris 7 and 8 boxes.

I'd like to sync different directories from one box to another.

This is my include file:

ppukweb2% more rsync-include-file

This is the command I run:

rsync -azv -e ssh --stats --include-from=/tmp/rsync-include-file

and this is the output I get:

ppukweb2% rsync -azv -e ssh --stats
--include-from=/tmp/rsync-include-file ppukweb8:/tmp/loris
receiving file list ... done
drwxr-xr-x        512 2003/08/13 12:15:01 loris
drwxr-xr-x        512 2003/08/13 12:15:01 loris/testrsync1

Number of files: 2
Number of files transferred: 0
Total file size: 0 bytes
Total transferred file size: 0 bytes
Literal data: 0 bytes
Matched data: 0 bytes
File list size: 79
Total bytes written: 97
Total bytes read: 95

wrote 97 bytes  read 95 bytes  128.00 bytes/sec
total size is 0  speedup is 0.00

Basically, nothing gets tranferred from ppukweb2 to ppukweb8.

Can anybody see what I'n doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
