Nevermind, I just figured it out.  My file is actually a symlink and I need to specify -F.

I'm trying to upload myfile.tar.gz to a s3 bucket called my_data that contains a directory set1, using the following command.

Why would this not work?  It seems (intuitive) to me, that is should upload the local file to the s3 bucket, but it doesn't.  Why?

[ryang@bic fastq]$ s3cmd -v put myfile.tar.gz s3://my_data/set1/
INFO: Compiling list of local files...
INFO: Applying --exclude/--include
INFO: Summary: 0 local files to upload

I'm assuming 1.1.0-beta:

[ryang@bic fastq]$ s3cmd --version
s3cmd version 1.1.0-beta3
