List,

I've been playing with the find command lately. Is there a way I can pipe the
putput list of files from find, into the tar command to create an archive which
contains the files which find lists? I tried the following, but it didn't work
(obviously).

find -E . '.*\.txt$' -print | tar -cjf result.tgz

Thanks!
