NAME

       filecap - a program to see capabilities

SYNOPSIS

       filecap [ -a | -d | /dir | /dir/file [cap1 cap2 ...] ]

DESCRIPTION

       filecap is a program that prints out a report of programs with file based capabilities. If
       a file is not in the report or there is no report at all, no capabilities were found.  For
       expedience,  the  default  is  to  check  only  the  directories in the PATH environmental
       variable. If the -a command line option is given, then all directories will be checked. If
       a  directory  is  passed, it will recursively check that directory. If a path to a file is
       given, it will only check that file. If the path to the file includes  capabilities,  then
       they are written to the file.

OPTIONS

       -a     This  tells  the  program  to  show all capabilities starting from the / directory.
              Normally the PATH environmental variable is used to show you capabilities on  files
              you are likely to execute.

       -d     This dumps all capabilities for reference.

EXAMPLES

       To check file capabilities in $PATH:
       filecap

       To check file capabilities of whole system:
       filecap -a

       To check file capabilities recursively in a directory:
       filecap /usr

       To check file capabilities of a specific program:
       filecap /bin/passwd

       To list all possible capabilities:
       filecap -d

       To set a file capability on a specific program:
       filecap /bin/ping net_raw net_admin

       To remove file capabilities on a specific program:
       filecap /bin/ping none
