SETFATTR(1)                     File Utilities                     SETFATTR(1)


       setfattr - set extended attributes of filesystem objects


       setfattr [-h] -n name [-v value] pathname...
       setfattr [-h] -x name pathname...
       setfattr [-h] --restore=file


       The  setfattr command associates a new value with an extended attribute
       name for each specified file.

       -n name, --name=name
           Specifies the name of the extended attribute to set.

       -v value, --value=value
           Specifies the new value for the extended attribute.

       -x name, --remove=name
           Remove the named extended attribute entirely.

       -h, --no-dereference
           Do not follow symlinks.  If pathname is a symbolic link, it is  not
           followed, but is instead itself the inode being modified.

           Restores  extended  attributes  from file.  The file must be in the
           format generated by the getfattr command with  the  --dump  option.
           If  a dash (-) is given as the file name, setfattr reads from stan-
           dard input.

           Print the version of setfattr and exit.

           Print help explaining the command line options.

       --  End of command line options.  All remaining parameters  are  inter-
           preted as file names, even if they start with a dash character.
