RE: Copy command copies directories I don't want

Hi guys,

Sorry to be a pest about this... 
But I'm not sure any more if there is something wrong with my filter or if 
filters do not prevent the problem I am having either...

I found a thread of a guy with the same problem and filters helped him:
http://groups.google.com/group/gnu.cfengine.help/browse_thread/thread/20ee2e2bcd6886af/f9e497e9f9c7c104?q=filter&rnum=29#f9e497e9f9c
7c104

I tried to use his filter and originally I thought it fixed the problem for me 
as well - even though it did not even copy the
sub-directories I *did* specify, but that's something I can work around...
But now it seems like I can not get the filter to do anything any more...

Thank you,

MARK
