 NAME
      lastcomm - show last commands executed in reverse order

 SYNOPSIS
      lastcomm [commandname] ...  [username] ...  [terminalname] ...

 DESCRIPTION
      lastcomm gives information on previously executed commands.  If no
      arguments are specified, lastcomm prints information about all the
      commands recorded in the accounting file, /var/adm/pacct during the
      current accounting file's lifetime.  If called with arguments, only
      accounting entries with a matching command name, user name, or
      terminal name are printed.  For example, to produce a listing of all
      executions of commands named a.out by user root on terminal ttyd0 use:

	   lastcomm a.out root ttyd0

      For each process entry, the following are printed.

	   +  Name of the user who ran the process.

	   +  Flags, as accumulated by the accounting facilities in the
	      system.

	   +  Command name under which the process was called.

	   +  Amount of cpu time used by the process (in seconds).

	   +  What time the process started.

      Flags are encoded as follows:

	   S	 Command was executed by a user who has appropriate
		 privileges.

	   F	 Command ran after a fork, but without a following exec.

	   D	 Command terminated with the generation of a core file.

	   X	 Command was terminated with the signal SIGTERM.
