       slocate - Security Enhanced version of the GNU Locate

       slocate [-qi] [-d <path>] [--database=<path>] <search string>
       slocate [-i] [-r <regexp>] [--regexp=<regexp>]
       slocate	 [-qv]	 [-o   <file>]	 [--output=<file>]   slocate   [-e  <dir1,dir2,...>]  [-f
       <fstype1,...>] <[-l <level>] [-c] <[-U <path>] [-u]>
       slocate [-Vh] [--version] [--help]

       Secure Locate provides a secure way to index and quickly search for all files on your sys-
       tem 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  owner-
       ship  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.

       -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.

       -n <num>
	      Limit the amount of results shown to <num>.

       -r <regexp>
	      --regexp=<regexp> Search the database using a basic POSIX regular expression.

       -o <file>
	      --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.

		   Colon-separated list of databases to search.

       Secure  Locate  will  parse GNU Locate's /etc/updatedb.conf when the argument is provided.
       But please be aware that Secure Locate currently does NOT support all options provided  by
       GNU Locate's configuration file.

       Options currently supported by Secure Locate are PRUNEFS and PRUNEPATHS
