I have the following folder and files:
. ├── photos │ ├── photo-a │ │ ├── photo-a.meta.json │ │ └── photo-a.json │ ├── photo-b │ │ ├── photo-b.meta.json │ │ └── photo-b.json ... There are more folders and files in the photos folder in the same structure
I would want to copy all the files
photo-b.json and others into another folder called
photos-copy. Basically, I want to exclude all the files that end with
.meta.json but copy only those that end with
So, if done correctly,
photos-copy folder would look like this:
. ├── photos-copy │ ├── photo-a.json │ └── photo-b.json ...
I tried something along
cp -a ./photos/*.json ./photos-copy but this will end up copying everything because the
.meta.json files also end with
How can I do this?
