not sure

I am writing to report a little error in your book "Building Embedded Linux Systems 2nd edition" in page 176: "perhaps adding a -r for recursive output" change -r in -R "perhaps adding a -R for recursive output" Best regards, Marco Santoni

Note from the Author or Editor:
Marco is of course correct. It is indeed a typo and the '-r' should be '-R' for recursive output. Many thanks Marco for spotting this one. Gilad
