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.

              slocate database.

       -l <num>
              Security level.  -l 0 turns security checks off, which will make

              default.
