The OpenGroupware Coils' WebDAV presentation makes a variety of useful object attributes available as properties through its namespace [57c7fc84-3cea-417d-af54-b659eb87a046]. The "set namespace" command in cadaver is used to determine the namespace for subsequent property queries. With the namespace set the propget command is used to retrieve the value of a named property, for example: "propget filename.txt objectid" will retrieve of value of the object id property of the named object.

In addition to simply querying properties cadaver also provides for deleting and setting mutable properties, and for locking objects and querying objects for existing locks. It is an indispensable tool for the WebDAV developer.
cadaver is packaged in the main repositories of all major LINUX distributions, can be built for Mac OS/X, and runs on Microsoft Windows via Cygwin.
