I have req, that I need to read one directory, print one by one, ask for "you want add to Tar file" if I enter Y it would be add to tar file,
like this read all files in directory and print file and ask for add to tar or not, if Y add to tar other wise No,

I think first we need to add to list and finally create tar file with all files which we add to list.

Please send me script .

Thanks in Advance

What do you have so far?

Shall it be possible to add subdirectories as a whole/ skip them as whole?

would do the file-iteration, and only show files, not directories.

tar -r adds files to archive - so no need to write to a list.

reads a single character from stdin.
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
