DESCRIPTION

       Secure Locate provides a secure way to index and quickly search for all
       files on your system  regardless  of  ownership.  It  uses  incremental
       encoding  just  like  GNU  locate  to  compress  its  database  to make
       searching faster, but it will also check file permissions and ownership
       before displaying matched entries so that users will not see files they
       do not have access to. Note that  permissions  and  ownership  are  not
       stored in the database.

       This  manual  page  documents 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.
              (see CONFIGURATION FILE below).

       -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.

              Limit the amount of results shown to <num>.

              --output=<file> Specfies the database to create.

       -d <path>
              --database=<path> Specfies 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.
