       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 specified 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
