Lab 10.2 - Dot

Note the . at the end of the command.
$ rsync -av /tmp/transfer-lab/*.bin [email protected]:/tmp/receive/.

I don't understand... Why dot?

    In this case the "." stops the creation of subdirectories and will produce an error on the screen if the subdirectories do not exist. Additional information is available in the "man rsync" document, under the "--dir" option.
