       filecap - a program to see capabilities

       filecap [ -a | -d | /dir | /dir/file [cap1 cap2 ...] ]

       filecap is a program that prints out a report of programs with file
       based capabilities. If a file is not in the report or there is no
       report at all, no capabilities were found. For expedience, the default
       is to check only the directories in the PATH environmental variable. If
       the -a command line option is given, then all directories will be
       checked. If a directory is passed, it will recursively check that
       directory. If a path to a file is given, it will only check that file.
       If a file is given followed by capabilities, then the capabilities are
       written to the file.

       -a     This tells the program to show all capabilities starting from
              the / directory. Normally the PATH environmental variable is
              used to show you capabilities on files you are likely to

       -d     This dumps all capabilities for reference.

       To check file capabilities in $PATH:

       To check file capabilities of whole system:
       filecap -a

       To check file capabilities recursively in a directory:
       filecap /usr

       To check file capabilities of a specific program:
       filecap /bin/passwd

       To list all possible capabilities:
       filecap -d

       To set a file capability on a specific program:
       filecap /bin/ping net_raw net_admin

       To remove file capabilities on a specific program:
       filecap /bin/ping none

       pscap(8), netcap(8), capabilities(7).
