SETFATTR(1)				  File Utilities			      SETFATTR(1)

NAME
       setfattr - set extended attributes of filesystem objects

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

DESCRIPTION
       The setfattr command associates a new value with an extended attribute name for each spec-
       ified file.

OPTIONS
       -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.

       --restore=file
	   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.

       --version
	   Print the version of setfattr and exit.

       --help
	   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 character.
