    Command:

    setfattr

    
    
    

    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 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  stan-
               dard 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 inter-
               preted as file names, even if they start with a dash character.
