Additional argument CONTEXT may be provided and will be used if no options have been specified to make secon get its context from another source. If that argument is - then the context will be read from stdin.
If there is no argument, secon will try reading a context from stdin, if that is not a tty, otherwise secon will act as though --self had been passed.

If none of --user, --role, --type, --level or --mls-range is passed. Then all of them will be output.
