Updating Slackware

I know this may be a nOOb question but this is the first time in the 4 months ive had slack that ive attempted this. anyways, my question is how the heck do you update it??

is there some hidden update manager in it, like RH up2date or what? I read some threads where people are talking about swaret but i cant find it on my system.

for the mean while until i find the update manager ive just stuck with updating my kernel b/c i have too many programs installed to sift through all of them to see which have updates that need installing.

any help would be great.

You can go to to see about swaret. I haven't used it yet, but have heard a good deal about it too.
