NAME
       lastcomm - show last commands executed in reverse order

SYNOPSIS
       lastcomm [ -f file ] [ command name ] ... [user name] ... [terminal name] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Lastcomm gives information on previously executed commands.

       Option:

       -f file	 Read from file rather than the default accounting file.

       With  no arguments, lastcomm prints information about all the commands recorded during the
       current accounting file's lifetime.  If called with  arguments,	only  accounting  entries
       with a matching command name, user name, or terminal name are printed.  So, for example,

	    lastcomm a.out root ttyd0

       would  produce a listing of all the executions of commands named a.out by user root on the
       terminal ttyd0.

       For each process entry, the following are printed.

	    The name of the user who ran the process.
	    Flags, as accumulated by the accounting facilities in the system.
	    The command name under which the process was called.
	    The amount of cpu time used by the process (in seconds).
	    The time the process exited.

       The flags are encoded as follows: ``S'' indicates the command was executed by  the  super-
       user,  ``F''  indicates	the command ran after a fork, but without a following exec, ``C''
       indicates the command was run in PDP-11 compatibility mode (VAX only), ``D'' indicates the
       command terminated with the generation of a core file, and ``X'' indicates the command was
       terminated with a signal.

FILES
       /usr/adm/acct	   Default accounting file.
