LAST(1) LAST(1) NAME last - report recent logins SYNOPSIS last [ userid ... ] [ terminal ] DESCRIPTION Last reports logins and logouts in reverse chronological order. Optional arguments restrict attention to selected userids or terminals. Terminals `tty0, tty1, ...' may be abbreviated `0, 1, ...' Last reports userid, terminal, time on, and time off. A pseudo-user, `reboot', logs in at reboots of the system, thus last reboot reports recent reboots. Upon interrupt, last tells how far back it has looked; upon quit (control-\) it tells how far and keeps on looking. FILES /usr/adm/wtmp login data base SEE ALSO who(1), wtmp(5), ac(8) BUGS Because the accounting file does not distinguish orderly shutdowns from crashes, neither does last.
