PROGRAM:

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.

If --regex is not specified, PATTERNs can contain 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 (but it does
require all parent directories to exist if the database was built with
--require-visibility no). 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


-A, --all
Print only entries that match all PATTERNs instead of requiring only one of them to
match.

-b, --basename
Match only the base name against the specified patterns. This is the opposite of
--wholename.

-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. The opposite can be specified using --nofollow.

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

-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.

This is the opposite of --follow.

-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 interoperability 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 REGEXP
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 license of locate on standard output and
exit successfully.

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

This is the default behavior. The opposite can be specified using --basename.

EXAMPLES


To search for a file named exactly NAME (not *NAME*), use
locate -b '\NAME'
Because \ is a globbing character, this disables the implicit replacement of NAME by
*NAME*.
