Terminal command line help

Post by nant » Mon Nov 12, 2012 3:45 pm

I installed keka on my mac and in terminal mode I am able to access the command:

Nicholass-MacBook-Pro:cb-quickstart-pro nick$ /Applications/Keka.app/Contents/Resources/keka7z --help

7-Zip [64] 9.20 Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-11-18
p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,8 CPUs)

Question is how do I specify that I want a zip file created that does not have the _MACOX folders in it.

Since you're using the bundled p7zip command line tool, use some command line help page:

In this case, this will do the trick: -x!_MACOSX

Hope it helps!
