     dmesg - display the system message buffer

     dmesg [-M core] [-N system]

     Dmesg displays the contents of the system message buffer.

     The options are as follows:

     -M      Extract values associated with the name list from the specified
             core instead of the default ``/dev/kmem''.

     -N      Extract the name list from the specified system instead of the
             default ``/bsd''.


     The dmesg command appeared in 4.0BSD.
