NAME
       slocate - Security Enhanced version of the GNU Locate

SYNOPSIS
       slocate [-qi] [-d <path>] [--database=<path>] <search string>

       slocate [-i] [-r <regexp>] [--regexp=<regexp>]

       slocate [-qv] [-o <file>] [--output=<file>]

       slocate [-e <dir1,dir2,...>] [-f <fstype1,...>] <[-l <level>] [-c] <[-U

       slocate [-Vh] [--version] [--help]

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
              database.

       -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
              regular 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.

       -v     --verbose Verbose mode. Display files when creating database.

       -V     --version Display version.
