does anyone know of a command that list all users. both logged on and logged off?  the list doesn't not need to distinguish who is logged on and logged off. i just need a complete list.

i tried 'finger' 'w'  and 'who' they give me only logged on users.

thanks,

it has bunch of options which can be useful if u are looking for some special login names.
