    What command can you use to see a list of users on the Linux system and determine if the user has ever logged in and if so, the date and time of the last login?

    1. usermod
    2. userlog
    3. login
    4. loglast
    5. lastlog

    Answer at the end of the week.

    Answer time. Correct answer is #5, lastlog. Here's a sample of the output.
    Code:
    jmpyles@tripwire:~$ lastlog | more

    root             tty1                      Mon Sep 12 07:53:34 -0600 2005

    Debian. Didn't try it on another distro but most Debian commands are pretty usable in other distros. Does this not work in ubuntu?

    EDIT: I just tried #2 on my Debian box. The command is not found for either the generic user or root user.
