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 specified 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. AUTHOR
