NAME

  atq -	Prints the queue of jobs waiting to be run

SYNOPSIS

  atq [-c  | -n] [-q queuename]	[user...]

  The atq command prints the queue of jobs waiting to be run at	a later	date.
  These	jobs were created with the at command.

OPTIONS

  -c  Sorts the	queue by the time that the at command was issued.

  -n  Prints only the number of	files currently	in the queue.

  -q queuename
      Specifies	the queue you want to use.

DESCRIPTION

  With no options, the queue is	sorted in the order that the jobs are to be
  executed.

  When a privileged user invokes the atq command without specifying a user-
  name,	the entire queue is displayed; if a username is	specified, only	those
  jobs belonging to the	specified user are displayed.

EXAMPLES

  In order to look at the queue	created	by the at command, enter:

       atq

  If there are jobs in the queue, a message similar to the following is
  displayed:

       root.62169200.a	       Tue Sep 12 11:00:00 1990

  The .a extension specifies an	at job.
