SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

pam_lastlog is a PAM module to display a line of information about the last login of the user. In addition, the module maintains the /var/log/lastlog file. Some applications may perform this function themselves. In such cases, this module is not necessary.

The date is not displayed when nodate is specified.
