       filecap - a program to see capabilities

       filecap [ -a | -d | /dir | /dir/file [cap1 cap2 ...] ]

       filecap	is  a  program	that prints out a report of programs with file
       based capabilities. If a file is not in	the  report  or	 there	is  no
       report  at all, no capabilities were found. For expedience, the default
       is to check only the directories in the PATH environmental variable. If
       the  -a	command	 line  option  is  given, then all directories will be
       checked. If a directory is  passed,  it	will  recursively  check  that
       directory.  If a path to a file is given, it will only check that file.
       If the path to the file includes capabilities, then they are written to
       the file.

       -a     This  tells  the	program to show all capabilities starting from
	      the / directory. Normally the  PATH  environmental  variable  is
	      used  to	show  you capabilities on files you are likely to exe‐

       -d     This dumps all capabilities for reference.

       To check file capabilities in $PATH:

       To check file capabilities of whole system:
       filecap -a

       To check file capabilities recursively in a directory:
       filecap /usr

       To check file capabilities of a specific program:
       filecap /bin/passwd

       To list all possible capabilities:
       filecap -d

       To set a file capability on a specific program:
       filecap /bin/ping net_raw net_admin

       pscap(8), netcap(8), capabilities(7).
