LASTLOGIN(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  LASTLOGIN(8)

NAME
     lastlogin -- indicate last	login time of users

SYNOPSIS
     lastlogin [-f file] [-rt] [user ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The lastlogin utility will	list the last login session of each specified
     user, or for all users by default.	 Each line of output contains the user
     name, the tty from	which the session was conducted, any hostname, and the
     start time	for the	session.

     If	more than one user is given, the session information for each user is
     printed in	the order given	on the command line.  Otherwise, information
     for all users is printed.	By default, the	entries	are sorted by user
     name.

     The lastlogin utility differs from	last(1)	in that	it only	prints infor-
     mation regarding the very last login session.  The	last login database is
     never turned over or deleted in standard usage.

     The following options are available:

     -f	file
	     Open last login database file instead of the system-wide data-
	     base.

     -r	     Print the entries in reverse sorted order.

     -t	     Sort the elements by last login time, instead of user name.
