I want to archive all .ctl files in a folder, recursively.
tar -cf ctlfiles.tar `find /home/db -name "*.ctl" -print`
The error message :
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names tar: /home/db/dunn/j: Cannot stat: No such file or directory tar: 74.ctl: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
I have these files: /home/db/dunn/j 74.ctl and j 75. Notice the extra space. What if the files have other special characters? How do I archive these files recursively?
