Many thanks for testing it out! Sorry I wasn't clear.
Since I'm rsyncing the directory tree, the hidden
directories like ".abc" also get transferred, how am
I able to exclude hidden directories to be transferred?
Hopefully this will also exclude those matched files
under hidden directories to be transferred... I tried
various combinations to exclude hidden directories,
however not much luck...
Thanks a lot,
