mlocate - An utility for finding files by name

License: GPLv2
Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
mlocate is a locate/updatedb implementation.  It keeps a database of
all existing files and allows you to lookup files by name.

The 'm' stands for "merging": updatedb reuses the existing database to avoid
rereading most of the file system, which makes updatedb faster and does not
trash the system caches as much as traditional locate implementations.
