NAMEsetcap - set file capabilities
SYNOPSISsetcap [-q] [-v] (capabilities|-|-r) filename [ ... capabilitiesN fileN ]
DESCRIPTIONIn 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.
