NAME

lastlog - examine lastlog file  

SYNOPSIS

lastlog [-u login-name] [-t days]  

DESCRIPTION

lastlog formats and prints the contents of the last login log, /var/log/lastlog. The login-name, port, and last login time will be printed. The default (no flags) causes lastlog entries to be printed, sorted by the numerical UID. Entering -u login-name flag will cause the lastlog record for login-name only to be printed. Entering -t days will cause only the lastlogins more recent than days to be printed. The -t flag overrides the use of -u.

If the user has never logged in the message "**Never logged in**" will be displayed instead of the port and time.

CAVEATS

Large gaps in uid numbers will cause the lastlog program to run longer with no output to the screen (i.e. if mmdf=800 and last uid=170, program will appear to hang as it processes uid 171-799).
