ProcedureHow to Create a Packing List

  1. 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).
