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
       option 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
       capabilities  are  read  from  the  standard  input. In such cases, the
       capability 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
       failure, the exit code is 1.
