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.  However, 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)
