sefcontext_compile is used to compile file context regular
expressions into pcre(3) format.
The compiled file is used by libselinux file labeling functions.
By default sefcontext_compile writes the compiled pcre file with the
.bin suffix appended (e.g. inputfile.bin).
-o Specify an outputfile that must be a fully qualified file name
as the .bin suffix is not automatically added.
-p Specify a binary policyfile that will be used to validate the
context entries in the inputfile
If an invalid context is found the pcre formatted file will
not be written and an error will be returned.
Results in the following file being generated:
sefcontext_compile -o new_fc.bin
Results in the following file being generated in the cwd:
