       logins -	list user and system login information

       /usr/bin/logins [-admopstux] [-g	group...] [-l login_name...]

       This  command  displays	information on user and	system logins known to
       the system. Contents of the output is controlled	by the command options
       and  can	 include  the following: user or system	login, user id number,
       passwd account field value (user	name or	 other	information),  primary
       group name, primary group id, multiple group names, multiple group ids,
       home directory, login shell, and	four password  aging  parameters.  The
       default	information is the following: login id,	user id, primary group
       name, primary group id and the account field value. Output is sorted by
       user id,	system logins, followed	by user	logins.

       Options	may be used together. If so, any login that matches any	crite-
       ria are displayed.

       The following options are supported:

       -a	       Add two password	expiration fields to the display.  The
		       fields  show how	many days a password can remain	unused
		       before it automatically becomes inactive, and the  date
		       that the	password expires.

       -d	       Selects logins with duplicate uids.

       -g group	       Selects	all users belonging to group, sorted by	login.
		       Multiple	groups can be specified	as  a  comma-separated
		       list.  When  the	-l and -g options are combined,	a user
		       is only listed once, even if the	user belongs  to  more
		       than one	of the selected	groups.

       -l login_name...Selects	the  requested	login.	Multiple logins	can be
		       specified as a comma-separated list. Depending  on  the
		       nameservice lookup types	set in /etc/nsswitch.conf, the
		       information  can	 come	from   the   /etc/passwd   and
		       /etc/shadow  files and other nameservices. When	the -l
		       and -g options are combined,  a	user  is  only	listed
		       once,  even if the user belongs to more than one	of the
		       selected	groups.

       -m	       Displays	multiple group membership information.

       -o	       Formats output into one line of colon-separated fields.

       -p	       Selects logins with no passwords.

       -s	       Selects all system logins.

       -t	       Sorts output by login instead of	by uid.

       -u	       Selects all user	logins.

       -x	       Prints an extended set of information  about  each  se-
		       lected user. The	extended information includes home di-
		       rectory,	login shell and	 password  aging  information,
		       each  displayed on a separate line. The password	infor-
		       mation consists of password  status (PS	for  password,
		       NP  for	no password or LK for locked). If the login is
		       passworded, status is followed by the  date  the	 pass-
		       word  was last changed, the number of days required be-
		       tween changes, and the number of	days allowed before  a
		       change  is  required.   The  password aging information
		       shows the time interval that the	user receives a	 pass-
		       word  expiration	 warning message (when logging on) be-
		       fore the	password expires.
