       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 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.


       -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.  Unless doing a logical (-L) traversal, do not traverse symlinks
           to directories.

       -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.

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

           Dump out the raw extended attribute value(s) without encoding them.

       -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 unless --no-dereference is given, 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.

           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 character.
