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 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.

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

       -V     --version Display version.
