NAME
       chklastlog - check lastlog-file for deleted entries

SYNOPSIS
       chklastlog

DESCRIPTION
       Chklastlog  is  reading	all  entries  from the file /var/log/wtmp (file with informations
       about logins and logouts) and checks for every user found in this file whether there is an
       entry  in  the  file  /var/log/lastlog,	too. The program will complain about userids with
       logins but no lastlogin information.

       To run chklastlog you need read permission on the files /var/log/wtmp and /var/log/lastlo-
       gin. Normally these files are world-readable and no special privileges are required to run
       the checker.

FILES
       /var/log/wtmp	   login data base
       /var/log/lastlog    last login times

SEE ALSO
       wtmp(4), who(1), last(1)

LIMITATIONS
       This program only works if the user has not logged in after the deletion of their  lastlog
       entry.

       This program was designed to run on SunOS 4.x systems only. On other systems the output is
       undefined...
