    Question How to SET the
    I know how to remove the quarantine attribute with xattr -d, but how would I set it on a file? I use iTerm2, and would like to set it on, to prevent launching it by mistake from spotlight, and other programs launching it.

    I've tried googling for an answer, but get flooded with tips on how to remove the attribute, so I'm hoping someone here knows.

    This will do it:
    xattr -w "0000;4b3a40d0;Safari;|" PATH_TO_FILE
