DESCRIPTION
	  Secure Locate	provides a secure way to index and quickly search  for
       files on	your system. It	uses incremental encoding just like GNU	locate
       to compress its database	to make	searching faster,  but	it  will  also
       store  file  permissions	and ownership so that users will not see files
       they do not have	access to.

	  This manual page documents the  GNU  version	of  slocate.   slocate
       Enables	system	users  to search entire	filesystems without displaying
       unauthorized files.

   OPTIONS
       -u     Create slocate database starting at path /.

       -U _dir_
	      Create slocate database starting at path <dir>.

       -e _dir1,dir2,..._
	      Exclude directories from the slocate database.

       -f _fstype1,..._
	      Exclude files on specific	file systems from  the	slocate	 data-
	      base.

       -c     Parse '/etc/updatedb.conf' when updating the slocate database.

       -l _level_
	      Security	level.	 0  turns  security checks off.	This will make
	      searchs faster.	1  turns  security  checks  on.	 This  is  the
	      default.

       -i     Does a case insensitive search.

       -q     Quiet mode.  Error messages are suppressed.

       -n _num_
	      Limit the	amount of results shown	to <num>.

       -r _regexp_
	      --regexp=_regexp_	 Search	the database using a basic POSIX regu-
	      lar expression.

       -o _file_
	      --output=_file_ Specifies	the database to	create.

       -d _path_
	      --database=_path_	Specifies the path of databases	to search  in.

       -h     --help Display this help.
