RUNLEVEL(8)		       Linux System Administrator's Manual		      RUNLEVEL(8)

NAME
       runlevel -- find the current and previous system runlevel.

SYNOPSIS
       runlevel [utmp]

DESCRIPTION
       Runlevel  reads	the  system  utmp  file  (typically /var/run/utmp) to locate the runlevel
       record, and then prints the previous and current system runlevel on its	standard  output,
       separated by a single space. If there is no previous system runlevel, the letter N will be
       printed instead.

       If no utmp file exists, or if no runlevel record can be found, runlevel	prints	the  word
       unknown and exits with an error.

       Runlevel  can be used in rc scripts as a substitute for the System-V who -r command.  How-
       ever, in newer versions of init(8) this information is also available in  the  environment
       variables RUNLEVEL and PREVLEVEL.

OPTIONS
       utmp   The name of the utmp file to read.

SEE ALSO
       init(8), utmp(5)
