I have a file that contain list of files I want to archive with tar.
Let's call it
/path1/path2/file1.txt /path1/path2/file3.txt ... /path1/path2/file10.txt
What I want to do is to archive this file into a tarball but excluding
Currently by doing this:
tar -cvf allfiles.tar -T mylist.txt
preserves the path after unarchiving.
I tried this but won't work too:
tar -cvf -C /path1/path2 allfiles.tar -T mylist.txt
It archives all the files in
/path1/path2 even those which are not in mylist.txt
Is there a way to do it?
