       getsebool - get SELinux boolean value(s)

       getsebool [-a] [boolean]

       getsebool  reports  where  a  particular SELinux boolean or all SELinux
       booleans are on or off In certain situations a boolean can  be  in  one
       state  with a pending change to the other state.	 getsebool will report
       this as a pending change.  The pending value indicates the  value  that
       will be applied upon the next boolean commit.

       The  setting  of boolean values occurs in two stages; first the pending
       value is changed, then the booleans are committed, causing their active
       values to become their pending values.  This allows a group of booleans
       to be changed in a single transaction, by setting all of their  pending
       values as desired and then committing once.

       -a     Show all SELinux booleans.
