SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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.
