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 direc-
              tory.  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.

       -l <num>
              Security level.  -l 0 turns  security  checks  off,
              which  will make searches faster.  -l 1 turns secu-
              rity checks on. This is the default.

       -q     Quiet mode; error messages are suppressed.

       -v     Verbose mode; display files indexed  when  creating
              database
