LASTCOMM(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		   LASTCOMM(1)

     lastcomm — show last commands executed in reverse order

     lastcomm [-f file] [command ...] [user ...] [terminal ...]

     Lastcomm gives information on previously executed commands.  With no
     arguments, lastcomm prints information about all the commands recorded
     during the current accounting file's lifetime.


     -f file	 Read from file rather than the default accounting file.

     If called with arguments, only accounting entries with a matching command
     name, user name, or terminal name are printed.  So, for example:

	   lastcomm a.out root ttyd0

     would produce a listing of all the executions of commands named a.out by
     user root on the terminal ttyd0.

     For each process entry, the following are printed.

	   ·   The name of the user who ran the process.
	   ·   Flags, as accumulated by the accounting facilities in the sys‐
	   ·   The command name under which the process was called.
	   ·   The amount of cpu time used by the process (in seconds).
	   ·   The time the process exited.

     The flags are encoded as follows: ``S'' indicates the command was exe‐
     cuted by the super-user, ``F'' indicates the command ran after a fork,
     but without a following exec, ``C'' indicates the command was run in
     PDP-11 compatibility mode (VAX only), ``D'' indicates the command termi‐
     nated with the generation of a core file, and ``X'' indicates the command
     was terminated with a signal.

     /var/account/acct	Default accounting file.

     last(1), sigvec(2), acct(5), core(5)

     The lastcomm command appeared in 3.0BSD.
