I just want to create a tar archive from a directory file listing.
ls -laR ~/the/dir/to/list | tar -cvf - /tmp/tarred-dir-list.tar.gz
I can't seem to find the correct syntax
I think you are looking for something like:
find ~/the/dir/to/list -type f | tar -cvf /tmp/tarred-dir-list.tar.gz -T -
This didn't work either. End up with the same problem as Alexander's suggestion.
I only want the directory listing. I do not want to tar up the files too
