RE: Copy command copies directories I don't want

Hi Mark,

Using ignore= would help me short term, but long-term there is no way to add 
each new directory that I add into the /etc directory
to the ignore list.
Sooner or later I (or somebody else) will add a directory and forget to put it 
in the ignore list.
Is there any other way to NOT traverse any subdirectories EXCEPT the ones I 
want?


I have

  etc
*  |- ldap.conf
   |- pam.d
*  |     +- system-auth
   |
   |- openldap
*  |     +- ldap.conf
   |            
   |- ha.d
   |     +- <somefiles>
   +- ipsec.d
         |- autostart.d.___hq___
         + <somefiles>

The ones with the * are the files I want (ldap.conf, openldap/ldap.conf, 
pam.d/system-auth).
I do NOT want ha.d, ipsec.d or autostart.d.___hq___


Thanks,

MARK
