With no arguments, .Nm prints information about all the commands recorded during the current accounting file's lifetime. .Pp Option: .Pp .Bl -tag -width Fl .It Fl f Ar file Read from .Ar file rather than the default accounting file. .El .Pp If called with arguments, only accounting entries with a matching .Ar command name, .Ar user name, or .Ar terminal name are printed. So, for example: .Pp .Dl lastcomm a.out root ttyd0 .Pp would produce a listing of all the executions of commands named .Pa a.out by user .Ar root on the terminal .Ar ttyd0 . .Pp For each process entry, the following are printed. .Pp .Bl -bullet -offset indent -compact .It The name of the user who ran the process. .It Flags, as accumulated by the accounting facilities in the system. .It The command name under which the process was called. .It The amount of cpu time used by the process (in seconds). .It The time the process started. .It The elapsed time of the process. .El .Pp The flags are encoded as follows: .Dq S indicates the command was executed by the super-user, .Dq F indicates the command ran after a fork, but without a following .Xr exec 3 , .Dq C indicates the command was run in PDP-11 compatibility mode (VAX only), .Dq D indicates the command terminated with the generation of a .Pa core file, and .Dq X indicates the command was terminated with a signal. .Sh FILES .Bl -tag -width /var/account/acct -compact .It Pa /var/account/acct Default accounting file. .El .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr last 1 , .Xr sigaction 2 , .Xr acct 5 , .Xr core 5 .Sh HISTORY The .Nm command appeared in .Bx 3.0 .
