GETPCAPS(8) System Manager's Manual GETPCAPS(8)
getpcaps - display process capabilities
getpcaps [optional args] pid...
getpcaps displays the capabilities on the processes indicated by the pid value(s) given on the command line. A pid of 0 displays the capabilities of the process that is running getpcaps itself. The capabilities are displayed in the cap_from_text(3) format. Optional arguments: --help or --usage Displays usage information and exits. --ugly or --legacy Displays output in a somewhat ugly legacy format. --verbose Displays usage in a legacy-like format but not quite so ugly in modern default terminal fonts. --iab Displays IAB tuple capabilities from the process. The output format here is the text format described in cap_iab(3). Double quotes encase the regular process capabilities and square brackets encase the IAB tuple. This format is also used by captree(8).
