slocate - Security Enhanced version of the GNU Locate SYNOPSIS
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] DESCRIPTION
Secure Locate provides a secure way to index and quickly search for files on your system. 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> --database=<path> Specifies 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. VERSION
