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 of the extended attribute. There are  three
       methods  available  for encoding the value.  If the given string is
       enclosed in double quotes, the inner string is treated as text.  In
       that  case, backslashes and double quotes have special meanings and
       need to be escaped by a preceding backslash. Any control characters
       can be encoded as a backslash followed by three digits as its ASCII
       code in octal. If the  given  string  begins  with  0x  or  0X,  it
       expresses  a hexadecimal number. If the given string begins with 0s
       or 0S, base64 encoding is expected.  See also the --encoding option
       of getfattr(1).

   -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
       standard input.

       Print the version of setfattr and exit.

       Print help explaining the command line options.

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