DESCRIPTION

Change the security context of each FILE to CONTEXT. With --reference, change the security context of each FILE to that of RFILE.
-h, --no-dereference
  affect symbolic links instead of any referenced file
--reference=RFILE
  use RFILE’s security context rather than specifying a CONTEXT value
-R, --recursive
  operate on files and directories recursively
-v, --verbose
  output a diagnostic for every file processed
-u, --user=USER
  set user USER in the target security context
-r, --role=ROLE
  set role ROLE in the target security context
-t, --type=TYPE
  set type TYPE in the target security context
-l, --range=RANGE
  set range RANGE in the target security context
The following options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when the -R option is also specified. If more than one is specified, only the final one takes effect.
-H if a command line argument is a symbolic link to a directory, traverse it
-L traverse every symbolic link to a directory encountered
-P do not traverse any symbolic links (default)
--help display this help and exit
--version
