users

Print login names of users currently logged in, print on a single line a blank-separated list of user names of users currently logged in to the current host.

Syntax
      users [file]

With no file argument, `users' extracts its information from the file `/var/run/utmp'.

If a file argument is given, `users' uses that file instead. A common choice is `/var/run/wtmp'.

The only options are `--help' and `--version'. 

Each user name corresponds to a login session, so if a user has more than one login session, that user's name will appear the same number of times in the output.
