NAME         top

       chcat - change file SELinux security category

SYNOPSIS         top

       chcat category file...
       chcat -l category user...
       chcat [[+|-]category...]  file...
       chcat -l [[+|-]category...]  user...
       chcat [-d] file...
       chcat -l [-d] user...

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

       When operating on files this script wraps the chcon command.
