    NAME

    locate - find files by name
    

     

    SYNOPSIS

    locate [OPTION]... PATTERN...

     

    DESCRIPTION

    locate reads one or more databases prepared by updatedb(8) and writes file names matching at least one of the PATTERNs to standard output, one per line.

    PATTERNs can contains globbing characters. If any PATTERN contains no globbing characters, locate behaves as if the pattern were *PATTERN*.

    By default, locate does not check whether files found in database still exist; locate can never report files created after the most recent update of the relevant database.

     

    EXIT STATUS

    locate exits with status 0 if any match was found or if locate was invoked with one of the --limit 0, --help, --statistics or --version options. If no match was found or a fatal error was encountered, locate exits with status 1.

    Errors encountered while reading a database are not fatal, search continues in other specified databases, if any.

     

    OPTIONS

    -b, --basename
    Match only the base name against the specified patterns.

    -c, --count
    Instead of writing file names on standard output, write the number of matching entries only.

    -d, --database DBPATH
    Replace the default database with DBPATH. DBPATH is a :-separated list of database file names. If more than one --database option is specified, the resulting path is a concatenation of the separate paths.

    An empty database file name is replaced by the default database. A database file name - refers to the standard input. Note that a database can be read from the standard input only once.

    -e, --existing
    Print only entries that refer to files existing at the time locate is run.

    -L, --follow
    When checking whether files exist (if the --existing option is specified), follow trailing symbolic links. This causes broken symbolic links to be omitted from the output.

    This is the default behavior.

    -h, --help
    Write a summary of the available options to standard output and exit sucessfully.

    -i, --ignore-case
    Ignore case distinctions when matching patterns.

    -l, --limit, -n LIMIT
    Exit successfully after finding LIMIT entries. If the --count option is specified, the resulting count is also limited to LIMIT.

    -m, --mmap
    Ignored, for compatibility with BSD and GNU locate.

    -P, --nofollow, -H
    When checking whether files exist (if the --existing option is specified), do not follow trailing symbolic links. This causes broken symbolic links to be reported like other files.

    -0, --null
    Separate the entries on output using the ASCII NUL character instead of writing each entry on a separate line. This option is designed for interoprerability with the --null option of GNU xargs(1).

    -S, --statistics
    Write statistics about each read database to standard output instead of searching for files and exit successfully.

    -q, --quiet
    Write no messages about errors encountered while reading and processing databases.

    -r, --regexp IREGEXP
    Search for a basic regexp REGEXP. No PATTERNs are allowed if this option is used, but this option can be specified multiple times.

    --regex
    Interpret all PATTERNs as extended regexps.

    -s, --stdio
    Ignored, for compatibility with BSD and GNU locate.

    -V, --version
    Write information about the version and licence of locate on standard output and exit sucessfully.

    -w, --wholename
    Match only the whole path name against the specified patterns.

    This is the default behavior.

     

    FILES

    /var/lib/mlocate/mlocate.db
    The database searched by default.

     

    ENVIRONMENT

    LOCATE_PATH
    Path to additional databases, added after the default database or the databases specified using the --database option.

     

    NOTES

    locate attempts to be compatible to slocate (without the options used for creating databases) and GNU locate, in that order. This is the reason for the impractical default --follow option and for the confusing set of --regex and--regexp options.

    The short spelling of the -r option is incompatible to GNU locate, where it corresponds to the --regex option. Use the long option names to avoid confusion.

    The LOCATE_PATH environment variable replaces the default database in BSD and GNU locate, but it is added to other databases in this implementation and slocate.
