SYNOPSIS

chrpath [ -v | --version ] [ -d | --delete ] [ -r <path>--replace <path> ] [ -c | --convert ] [ -l | --list ] [ -h | --help ] <program> [ <program> ... ]  

DESCRIPTION

chrpath changes, lists or removes the rpath or runpath setting in a binary. The rpath, or runpath if it is present, is where the runtime linker should look for the libraries needed for a program.

-r <path> | --replace <path>

-h | --help
