    Command:

    DESCRIPTION

           /etc/updatedb.conf is a text file.  Blank lines are ignored.  A # char-
           acter outside of a quoted string starts a comment extending  until  end
           of line.
    
           Other lines must be of the following form:
                  VARIABLE = "VALUE"
    
           White  space  between  tokens  is ignored.  VARIABLE is an alphanumeric
           string which does not start with a digit.  VALUE can contain any  char-
           acter  except for ".  No escape mechanism is supported within VALUE and
           there is no way to write VALUE spanning more than one line.
    
           Unknown VARIABLE values are considered an error.  The defined variables
           are:
    
           PRUNEFS
                  A  whitespace-separated  list  of  file system types (as used in
                  /etc/mtab) which should not be scanned by updatedb(8).  The file
                  system  type  matching is case-insensitive.  By default, no file
                  system types are skipped.
    
                  When scanning a file system is skipped, all file systems mounted
                  in  the  subtree  are  skipped  too, even if their type does not
                  match any entry in PRUNEFS.
    
           PRUNENAMES
                  A whitespace-separated list of directory names  (without  paths)
                  which  should  not  be  scanned  by updatedb(8).  By default, no
                  directory names are skipped.
    
                  Note that only directories can  be  specified,  and  no  pattern
                  mechanism (e.g.  globbing) is used.
    
           PRUNEPATHS
                  A  whitespace-separated  list of path names of directories which
                  should not be scanned by updatedb(8).  Each path  name  must  be
                  exactly  in the form in which the directory would be reported by
                  locate(1).
    
                  By default, no paths are skipped.
    
           PRUNE_BIND_MOUNTS
                  One of the strings 0, no, 1 or yes.  If PRUNE_BIND_MOUNTS  is  1
                  or  yes,  bind  mounts are not scanned by updatedb(8).  All file
                  systems mounted in the subtree of a bind mount  are  skipped  as
                  well,  even  if they are not bind mounts.  As an exception, bind
    
           non-directory files.  This is not the case in this implementation.
    
           /etc/updatedb.conf is a shell script  in  some  implementations,  which
           allows  much  more  flexibility  in defining the variables.  Equivalent
           functionality can be achieved by  using  the  command-line  options  to
           updatedb(8).
