Yes, and no.

Yes it does read from the stdin but the problem is that it seems to be
ignoring
the fact I only want folders.

J:\Temp Folders\wbtTemp>find c:\writing\winbatch -type d
c:\writing\winbatch
c:\writing\winbatch\2007-Tutorial
c:\writing\winbatch\2007-Tutorial\Access
c:\writing\winbatch\2007-Tutorial\Excel
c:\writing\winbatch\2007-Tutorial\MSIE
c:\writing\winbatch\2007-Tutorial\Web
c:\writing\winbatch\HomeCare
c:\writing\winbatch\MYSQL

lists all folders, however when tar gets a-hold of them, it thinks I
want their
contents. It fills the archive with ALL the files in those folders.
That's the
Windows Command Interpreter obviously.

Obviously on that page I posted it seemed to work

do you get only folders and the structure (no files) on a test on your
system ?
