mac default iconxattr For Mac Publisher's description

xattr - Manipulate the extended attributes of files.

xattr - Manipulate the extended attributes of files.

With the xattr command, the extended attributes of one or more files may be listed, written (set), printed (displayed), or deleted.

Extended attributes allow the arbitrary association of name:data pairs with file system objects (file, directories, symbolic links, et cetera). The name of an extended attribute may be any null-terminated UTF-8 string. The data associated with it may be either textual or binary.

This implimentation of the xattr command is designed to be backwards-compatible with the python script that shipped as /usr/bin/xattr with Macintosh OS 10.5.0 (Leopard). The display format has been changed slightly for use in shell scripts.

By default, xattr lists the extended attributes associate with the file object at the specified path. Alternate behavior is triggered by the use of a command flag.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Major Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
