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.
