NAME

       zlocate - find a user using Zephyr

SYNOPSIS

       zlocate [ -a | -d ] [ -1 ] [ -p ] user ...

DESCRIPTION

       Zlocate uses the Zephyr(1) Notification Service to find where a user is
       currently logged in.  If the user is not logged  in,  or  has  set  his
       location  information  such  that  you  do  not  have access to see it,
       zlocate prints "Hidden or not logged-in".  Otherwise, each machine that
       the  user  is  currently logged into is printed, along with the time of
       login and location.  The  location  is  usually  the  X  window  system
       display  name of the user's display, but may be the terminal name if he
       is not using X or for some other reason  is  only  using  the  terminal
       interface to zwgc(1).

       By  default, all zlocate requests are authenticated using Kerberos.  If
       you do not have Kerberos tickets, or for some other reason do not  want
       to  authenticate,  the  -d option will turn off authentication.  The -a
       option is the default, authentication on.

       When locating multiple users, zlocate will display the user name  on  a
       line by itself, followed by the locations for that user. To display the
       user name on the same line as  the  output,  use  the  -1  option  (the
       numeral one).

       To  look  up  multiple  users  in  parallel  asynchronously, use the -p
       option.

DIAGNOSTICS

       zlocate exits with status zero (0) if at least one user was found,  and
       one (1) if no users were found.
