I have a list of files that are in various directories on a remote machine that I want to rsync to a single directory on my local machine.
For an individual file
user@remote:dir1/dir2/file1 ~/local does what I want; i.e.
If I use
--files-from then it creates the directory structure giving me
~local/dir1/dir2/file1 which I don't want.
n.b. I am aware that duplicate file names from different directories would cause files to be overwritten in
