 NAME
      audtrail - A dcecp object that converts the audit trail into a
      readable format

 SYNOPSIS
      audtrail help [operation | -verbose]

      audtrail operations

      audtrail show audit_trail_file_name_list [-to filename]


 ARGUMENTS
      audit_trail_file_name_list
		A list of one or more names of audit trail files.  The names
		are not the full pathnames, but only the residual file name.

      operation The name of the audtrail operation for which to display help
		information.


 DESCRIPTION
      The audtrail object represents an audit trail file.  This command
      currently supports only one operation, which converts the audit trail
      into a human readable format.

 OPERATIONS
    audtrail help
      Returns help information about the audtrail object and its operations.
      The syntax is as follows:

      audtrail help [operation | -verbose]


      Options


      -verbose	Displays information about the audtrail object.


      Used without an argument or option, the audtrail help command returns
      brief information about each audtrail operation. The optional
      operation argument is the name of an operation about which you want
      detailed information. Alternatively, you can use the -verbose option
      for more detailed information about the audtrail object itself.

      Privileges Required

      No special privileges are needed to use the audtrail help command.

    audtrail operations
      Returns a list of the operations supported by the audtrail object. The
      syntax is as follows:

      audtrail operations


      The list of available operations is in alphabetical order except for
      help and operations, which are listed last.

      Privileges Required

      No special privileges are needed to use the audtrail operations
      command.

      Examples

      dcecp> audtrail operations
      show help operations
      dcecp>


    audtrail show
      Returns the audit trail in a readable format.  The syntax is as
      follows:

      audtrail show audit_trail_file_name_list [-to filename]

      Options


      -to filename
		Specifies the name of the file in which to store the audit
		trail output.


      The show operation returns the audit trail in a readable format.	This
      command takes as an argument a list of names of audit trail files.  If
      more than one name is given, the output of each audit trail is
      concatenated and a blank line inserted between audit trails.  The -to
      option specifies a destination filename for the trail.  If this option
      is not present, the trail is returned from the command.  If the option

      is present, this operation returns an empty string.

      Because audit trail files can grow quite large, using the -to switch
      is strongly recommended to avoid reading the entire trail into memory.

      Note that when dcecp processes output, it sends the entire set of
      returned information to an internal buffer before displaying it.
      Therefore, when the output is directed to the screen, it can take a
      long time to appear.

      Privileges Required

      You must have r (read) permission on the audit trail file on the local
      file system.

      Examples

      dcecp> audtrail show my_trail
