NAME

       getfattr - get extended attributes of filesystem objects

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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 pathname.

       -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 dereference symlinks. Instead of the file a  symlink  refers  to,  the  symlink
           itself is examined.

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

       --absolute-names
           Do not strip leading slash characters  ('/').   The  default  behaviour  is  to  strip
           leading slash characters.

       --only-values
           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  to  directories.  The default behaviour is to
           follow  symbolic  link  arguments,  and  to  skip  symbolic   links   encountered   in
           subdirectories.  Only effective in combination with -R.

       -P, --physical
           Physical  walk, do not follow symbolic links to directories.  This also skips symbolic
           link arguments.  Only effective in combination with -R.

       --version
           Print the version of getfattr and exit.

       --help
           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 character.
