lastcomm(1)			 User Commands			   lastcomm(1)

NAME
       lastcomm	- display the last commands executed, in reverse order

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

DESCRIPTION
       The lastcomm command gives information on previously executed commands.
       lastcomm	 with no arguments displays information	about all the commands
       recorded	during the current accounting file's lifetime. If called  with
       arguments,  lastcomm  only  displays accounting entries with a matching
       command-name, user-name,	or terminal-name. If extended process account-
       ing  is	active (see acctadm(1M)) and is	recording the appropriate data
       items, lastcomm attempts	to take	data from the current extended process
       accounting  file.  If  standard	process	accounting is active, lastcomm
       takes data from the current standard accounting file (see acct(2)).

       If terminal-name	is `-  -',  there  was	no  controlling	 TTY  for  the
       process.	  The process was probably executed during boot	time. If  ter-
       minal-name is `??', the controlling TTY could not  be  decoded  into  a
       printable name.

       For each	process	entry, lastcomm	displays the following items of	infor-
       mation:

	 o  The	command	name under which the process was called.

	 o  One	 or  more  flags  indicating  special  information  about  the
	    process. The flags have the	following meanings:

	    F	     The process performed a fork but not an exec.

	    S	     The process ran as	a set-user-id program.

	 o  The	name of	the user who ran the process.

	 o  The	 terminal  which the user was logged in	on at the time (if ap-
	    plicable).

	 o  The	amount of CPU time used	by the process (in seconds).

	 o  The	date and time the process exited.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -f file	       Uses file as the	source of accounting data. file	may be
		       either  an  extended process accounting file or a stan-
		       dard process accounting file.

       -x	       Uses the	currently active extended  process  accounting
		       file. If	extended processing accounting is inactive, no
		       output will be produced.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Listing executions of	named commands

       The command

       example%	lastcomm a.out root term/01

       produces	a listing of all the executions	of  commands  named  a.out  by
       user root while using the terminal term/01.

       Example 2: Listing all user commands

       The command

       example%	lastcomm root

       produces	a listing of all the commands executed by user root.

FILES
       /var/adm/pacct		       standard	accounting file

       /var/adm/exacct/proc	       extended	accounting file
