NAME
       lastcomm - show the last commands executed, in reverse order

SYNOPSIS
       lastcomm [ command-name ] ... [ user-name ] ... [ terminal-name ] ...

DESCRIPTION
       lastcomm  gives  information on previously executed commands.  lastcomm
       with no arguments displays information about all the commands  recorded
       during  the  current  accounting file's lifetime.  If called with argu-
       ments, lastcomm displays only accounting entries with a  matching  com-
       mand-name, user-name, or terminal-name.

EXAMPLES
       The command

              example% lastcomm a.out root ttyd0

       would  produce a listing of all the executions of commands named a.out,
       by user root while using the terminal ttyd0.

              example% lastcomm root

       would produce a listing of all the commands executed by user root.

              o  One or more flags indicating special  information  about  the
                 process.  The flags have the following meanings:
