LASTCOMM(1)			     General Commands Manual			      LASTCOMM(1)

       lastcomm -  print out information about previously executed commands.

	      [ command-name ...  ]
	      [ user-name ...  ]
	      [ terminal-name ...  ]
	      [ --strict-match ]
	      [ -f filename | --file filename ]
	      [ --user name ] [ --command name ] [ --tty name ]
	      [ --debug ] [ -V | --version ] [ -h | --help ]

       lastcomm  prints  out information about previously executed commands.  If no arguments are
       specified, lastcomm will print info about all of the commands in acct (the  record  file).
       If called with one or more of command-name, user-name, or terminal-name, only records con-
       taining those items will be displayed.  For example, to find out which users used  command
       `a.out' and which users were logged into `tty0', type:
					  lastcomm a.out tty0

       This  will  print  any  entry  for  which `a.out' or `tty0' matches in any of the record's
       fields (command, name, or terminal).  If you want to find only items that match	*all*  of
       the  arguments on the command line, you must use the '-strict-match' option.  For example,
       to list all of the executions of command a.out by user root on terminal tty0, type:
				lastcomm --strict-match a.out root tty0

       The order of the arguments is not important.

       For each entry the following information is printed:
	  + command name of the process
	  + flags, as recorded by the system accounting routines:
	       S -- command executed by super-user
	       F -- command executed after a fork but without a following exec
	       C -- command run in PDP-11 compatibility mode (VAX only)
	       D -- command terminated with the generation of a core file
	       X -- command was terminated with the signal SIGTERM
	  + the name of the user who ran the process
	  + time the process exited

	      Print only entries that match *all* of the arguments on the command line.

       --user name
	      List records for user with name.	This is useful if you're trying to match a  user-
	      name that happens to be the same as a command (e.g., ed ).

       --command name
	      List records for command name.

       --tty name
	      List records for tty name.

       -f filename, --file filename
	      Read from the file filename instead of acct

	      Print verbose internal information.

       -V, --version
	      Print the version number of lastcomm.

       -h, --help
	      Prints  the  usage  string and default locations of system files to standard output
	      and exits.

	      The system wide process accounting file. See acct(5) (or pacct(5)) for further  de-

       The  GNU  accounting  utilities	were written by Noel Cragg <noel@gnu.ai.mit.edu>. The man
       page was adapted from the accounting texinfo page by Susan Kleinmann <sgk@sgk.tiac.net>.
