gindex lists all the items in GROGGS. It requires access level 1, and its syntax is :
gindex [<options>] [<switches>]
gindex lists all the items in GROGGS (specifically, it lists all index entries of types I, C, and F [note that since item withdrawals and edits are both marked E, some items listed in the output of gindex may have been withdrawn]).

By default,gindex has no time limit, but one can be introduced with the hours and last keywords. If an item is a continuation of another item, gindex will prefix its subject with the itemid of the previous item in square brackets like this : [K1234567], unless /nocont is set.

gindex formats its output for 80 columns (by default), and writes to the terminal (via a pagewaiter unless /display is on) in interactive mode, or the TO dataset in non-interactive mode.

Example :
$ gindex
