linux command


hi all

I am newbie in linux and I've just started learning how to use it.

actually I hadn't installed linux on my Pc yet, instead I used knoppix std which seems to operate like lenux.

the problem of using knoppix that it does not perform some commands as they must be.

for example:
the last command, if we use it with -d option it must display the IP address but it does not do so.

another problem is that I an required to write a program to do some operations in the date of login displayed in last command and since I don't know how data are displayed using last command I will not be able to write that program.

what I need is if any one of you could show me a screen shot of text to the result of last command with some options and with out.

I quickly checked... I have RedHat and SLES (SuSE) at work, I use Gentoo on my laptop and currently have Ubuntu installed on my test PC at work. All seem to have this information in their 'last' output. So I'd say most if not all linux systems give this output.
