zlocate - find a user using Zephyr
zlocate [ -a | -d ] user ...
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 win-
dow 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.
zlocate exits with status zero (0) if at least one user
was found, and one (1) if no users were found.
