DESCRIPTION
	  Secure  Locate provides a secure way to index and quickly search for files on your sys-
       tem. 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 regular expression.

       -o <file>
	      --output=<file> Specifies the database to create.

       -d <path>
