-F STRING | --format=STRING
Use specified format string instead of the default string.
-f DIR | --file=DIR
Use database directory DIR. Default location is /var/lib/rush.
--forward
Display entries in chronological instead of reverse time order. The latter is the default mode of operation.
-n NUM | --count=NUM | -NUM
Show at most NUM records. The numerical form, such as '-3', is provided for compatibility with the standard utility last(1).

-h | --help
Display a short help message.
--usage
Display a concise usage summary.
 

FILES

/var/lib/rush
Default database directory, where the session history files utmp and wtmp are maintained.
 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

RUSHLAST_FORMAT
Formatting string to be used instead of the hard coded value, whenever the switch -F is not in use. An unset value makes rushlast apply the default string.
 

SEE ALSO

The full documentation for rushlast is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info and rush programs were installed from source at your site, the command
info rush

should give you access to the complete manual.

An online manual is available at

http://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/software/rush/manual.html.

The Debian package provides information in

/etc/rush.rc
/usr/share/doc/rush/README.Debian.gz

with relevant examples, but cannot include the Texinfo manual.

AUTHOR

This text was written by Mats Erik Andersson for the Debian project, because the original source supplies documentation only in the form of a GNU Texinfo manual. The upstream author licenses the manual under GFDL-1.3, so it had to be removed from the Debian packaging.
