       getfattr - get extended attributes of filesystem objects


       getfattr [-hRLP] -n name [-e en] pathname...
       getfattr [-hRLP] -d [-e en] [-m pattern] pathname...


       For each file, getfattr displays the file name, and the set of extended
       attribute names (and optionally values) which are associated with  that

       The output format of getfattr -d is as follows:
               1:  # file: somedir/
               2:  user.name0="value0"
               3:  user.name1="value1"
               4:  user.name2="value2"
               5:  ...

       Line 1 identifies the file name for which the following lines are being
       reported.  The remaining lines (lines 2 to 4 above) show the  name  and
       value pairs associated with the specified file.

       -n name, --name=name
           Dump  the value of the named extended attribute extended attribute.

       -d, --dump
           Dump  the  values  of  all  extended  attributes  associated   with

       -e en, --encoding=en
           Encode  values  after  retrieving  them.   Valid  values  of en are
           "text", "hex", and "base64".  Values encoded as  text  strings  are
           enclosed in double quotes ("), while strings encoded as hexidecimal
           and base64 are prefixed with 0x and 0s, respectively.

       -h, --no-dereference
           Do not follow symlinks.   If  pathname  is  a  symbolic  link,  the
           symbolic  link  itself  is  examined, rather than the file the link
           refers to.

       -m pattern, --match=pattern
           Only include attributes with names matching the regular  expression
           pattern.   The  default  value  for pattern is "^user\\.", -m which
           includes all the  attributes  in  the  user  namespace.   Refer  to
           attr(5) for a more detailed discussion on namespaces.

           Do not strip leading slash characters (’/’).  The default behaviour
           is to strip leading slash characters.

           Dump out the extended attribute value(s) only.

       -R, --recursive
           List the attributes of all files and directories recursively.

       -L, --logical
           Logical walk, follow symbolic links.  The default behaviour  is  to
           follow   symbolic  link  arguments,  and  to  skip  symbolic  links
           encountered in subdirectories.

       -P, --physical
           Physical walk, skip all symbolic links.  This also  skips  symbolic
           link arguments.

           Print the version of getfattr 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
