Which is what we want. The "--exclude-from=" directive tells
rsync to load each line of that file to use. If I use your cat
command from your other post I get the error message;

rsync: failed to open exclude file -e17_src: No such file or

because it is then trying to use each line for a file.

Thanks for the effort.
