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 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.

       --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.
