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.

       -U path
              Create slocate database starting at path path.

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

       -f fstypes
              Exclude file systems in the comma-separated list dirs  from  the
              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.

       -v     Verbose mode; display files indexed when creating database

       --help Print a summary of the options to slocate and exit.

       --version
