is a utility to search backwards in the session history that GNU rush maintains about all users calling on its services.


-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.
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 | --no-header
Suppress the header line in printout.
-v | --version
Display program version.
-h | --help
Display a short help message.
Display a concise usage summary.


Location of configuration file.
Default database directory, where the session history files utmp and wtmp are maintained.


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.


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.
