DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents slocate, a security-enhanced version of
       locate.  updatedb is simply a link to slocate that implies the -u
       option.

OPTIONS
       -u     Create slocate database starting at the root directory.  This is
              the default behavior when called as updatedb.

              Create slocate database starting at path path.

       -e dirs
              Exclude directories in the comma-separated list dirs from the
              slocate database.

              slocate database.

       -l _num_
              Security level.  -l 0 turns security checks off, which will make
              searches faster.  -l 1 turns security checks on. This is the
              default.

       -q     Quiet mode; error messages are suppressed.
