       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 follow symlinks.  If  pathname  is  a  symbolic
           link,  the  symbolic  link  itself is examined, rather
           than the file the link refers to.

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

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

       -P, --physical
           Physical  walk,  skip  all  symbolic links.  This also
           skips symbolic link arguments.

           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.
