Files copying - [ Listed files alone. ] - Shell script

Hi All,

I am doing this for svn patch making. I got the list of files to make the patch. I have the list in a file with path of all the files.

To Do
From Directory : /myproject/MainDir
To Directory : /myproject/data

List of files need to copy is in the file: /myproject/filesList.txt

cat /myproject/filesList.txt              input

Directory structure
├── class1
│ ├── a
│ │ ├──
│ │ └──
│ ├── b
│ │ ├──
│ │ └──
│ └── c
├── class2
│ ├── a
│ │ ├──
│ │ └──
│ ├── b
│ │ ├──
│ │ └──
│ ├── c
│ │ └──
│ ├── d
│ └── e
├── class3
│ ├── aa
│ └── dd
├── system
└── system123
└── pp

Now the thing i needed is :
I want all the ONLY files listed in filesList.txt to be copied in /myproject/data with the same path.

So that the output will be all the files copied as ::

is it possible..?

[ pls tell me if my doubt is not clear ]

This script should work:
while read f; do
  new=`echo "$f" | sed 's/MainDir/data/'`
  d=`dirname "$new"`
  mkdir -p "$d" 
  cp -v "$f" "$d"

Dear Yazu..

sorry to say that i didnt understand your code completely. I tried its working fine in "Dummy directory" what i given. Thanks for that.

Actually my MainDir will be in one path and data directory will be in another path.

Eg: MainDir is like

and data in

If i do this spec with your code , i am getting error. Can you make it clear , if possible with variables ?
I mean

What we shall do.. ?

If i understand correctly you have instead MainDir $inputvar with slashes inside and instead of data - $datavar (with slashes too).
Then change
  new=`echo "$f" | sed 's/MainDir/data/'`

 new = `echo "$f" | sed "s!$inputvar!$datavar!"
