       setcap - set file capabilities

       setcap [-q] [-v] (capabilities|-|-r) filename [ ... capabilitiesN fileN

       In 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

       The special capability string, '-', can be used to indicate that	 capa‐
       bilities	 are read from the standard input. In such cases, the capabil‐
       ity 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.

       The setcap program will exit with a 0 exit code if successful. On fail‐
       ure, the exit code is 1.
