Create a customized user-centric locate database
Authored by: daaku on Apr 09, '08 09:47:54AM

There's an easier way to generate the locate db:

25 * * * * find -H $HOME -type f | /usr/libexec/locate.mklocatedb > $HOME/Library/llocate.database

you don't have the option to modify it for other needs. One such option, was that I removed my library by putting it in my prune path.

Also, I would note that your method wasn't really that much easier since you still needed to create the crontab and create an alias (which you are not explaining).
