Change/Remove the security category for each file or user.
Use +/- to add/remove categories from a file or user.
Note: When removing a category you must specify '--' on the
command line before using the -Category syntax. This tells the
command that you have finished entering options and are now
specifying a category name instead.
-d delete the category from each FILE/USER.
-L list available categories.
-l Tells chcat to operate on users instead of files.
