NAME
       netcap - a program to see capabilities

SYNOPSIS
       netcap

DESCRIPTION
       netcap is a program that prints out a report of process capabilities.
       If the application is using tcp, udp, raw, or packet family of sockets
       AND has any capabilities, it will be in the report. If the process has
       partial capabilities, it is further examined to see if it has an open-
       ended bounding set. If this is found to be true, a '+' symbol is added.

       Some directories in the /proc file system are readonly by root. The
       program will try to access and report what it can. But if nothing comes
       out, try changing to the root user and re-run this program.
