Print who is currently logged in
SYNTAX who [OPTION] [FILE] [am i] OPTIONS `-m' Print the current user id, name and domain (Same as `who am i') `-q' `--count' Print only the login names and the number of users logged on. Overrides all other options. `-s' Ignored; for compatibility with other versions of `who'. `-i' `-u' `--idle' After the login time, print the number of hours and minutes that the user has been idle. `.' means the user was active in last minute. `old' means the user was idle for more than 24 hours. `-l' `--lookup' Attempt to canonicalize hostnames found in utmp through a DNS lookup. This is not the default because it can cause significant delays on systems with automatic dial-up internet access. `-H' `--heading' Print a line of column headings. `-w' `-T' `--mesg' `--message' `--writable' After each login name print a character indicating the user's message status: `+' allowing `write' messages `-' disallowing `write' messages `?' cannot find terminal device
If given no non-option arguments, `who' prints the following information
for each user currently logged on:
remote hostname or X display.
If given one non-option argument, `who' uses that instead of `/var/run/utmp' as the name of the file containing the record of users logged on. `/var/run/wtmp' is commonly given as an argument to `who' to look at who has previously logged on.
If given two non-option arguments, `who' prints only the entry for the user running it (determined from its standard input), preceded by the hostname. Traditionally, the two arguments given are `am i', as in `who am i'.
