Create a packing list file by using vi.
The packing list file format uses the same format as the filesync command. For more information, see filesync(1).
Two packing list features are the following:
You can identify files in the packing list as regular expressions rather than literal file names so that you don't have to specify each individual file name.
You can pack files from a shared directory by ensuring that you pack only those files that you own.
For more information on using these features, see cachefspack(1M).
The following example shows the contents of a packing list file.
BASE /home/ignatz LIST plans LIST docs IGNORE *.ps
The path identified with the BASE statement is the directory where you have items you want to pack.
The two LIST statements identify specific files within that directory to pack.
The IGNORE statement identifies the file type of .ps, which you do not want to pack.
