Command Line Options: File Selection

The files parameter on the command line tells BRU which directories and files to include in an archive. BRU scans its command line, and when it runs out of mode, control, and selection option specifications, interprets the rest of the command line as file names. File names must be specified last. If they are not, the results of the command may be unexpected. It is important to understand that specifying files on the command line is optional. If you do not include the files parameter, BRU will use the default value and include everything in the current directory and in all directories below the current directory.
