       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 spec-
       ified 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 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 character.
