OPTIONS

-n name, --name=name
Specifies the name of the extended attribute to set.
-v value, --value=value
Specifies the new value of the extended attribute. There are three methodsavailable for encoding the value. If the given string is enclosed in doublequotes, the inner string is treated as text. In that case, backslashes anddouble quotes have special meanings and need to be escaped by a precedingbackslash. Any control characters can be encoded as a backslash followed bythree digits as its ASCII code in octal. If the given string begins with 0x or0X, it expresses a hexadecimal number. If the given string begins with 0s or0S, base64 encoding is expected. Also see the --encoding option ofgetfattr(1).
