SETCAP(8)		    System Manager's Manual		     SETCAP(8)

NAME
       setcap -	set file capabilities

SYNOPSIS
       setcap [-q] [-v]	(capabilities|-|-r) filename [ ... capabilitiesN fileN
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       In the absence of the -v	(verify) option	setcap sets  the  capabilities
       of  each	 specified filename to the capabilities	specified.  The	-v op-
       tion is used to verify that the specified  capabilities	are  currently
       associated with the file.

       The   capabilities   are	  specified   in   the	 form	described   in
       cap_from_text(3).

       The special capability string, '-', can be used to indicate that	 capa-
       bilities	 are read from the standard input. In such cases, the capabil-
       ity set is terminated with a blank line.

       The special capability string, '-r', is used to remove a	capability set
       from a file.

       The -q flag is used to make the program less verbose in its output.

EXIT CODE
       The setcap program will exit with a 0 exit code if successful. On fail-
       ure, the	exit code is 1.

SEE ALSO
