NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pac -- printer/plotter accounting information

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     pac [-Pprinter] [-c] [-m] [-pprice] [-s] [-r] [name ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pac utility reads the printer/plotter accounting files, accumulating
     the number of pages (the usual case) or feet (for raster devices) of
     paper consumed by each user, and printing out how much each user consumed
     in pages or feet and dollars.

     Options and operands available:

     -Pprinter	Accounting is done for the named printer.  Normally, accounting
 is done for the default printer (site dependent) or the
		value of the environment variable PRINTER is used.

     -c 	Cause the output to be sorted by cost; usually the output is
		sorted alphabetically by name.

     -m 	Cause the host name to be ignored in the accounting file.
		This allows for a user on multiple machines to have all of his
		printing charges grouped together.

     -pprice	The value price is used for the cost in dollars instead of the
		default value of 0.02 or the price specified in /etc/printcap.

     -r 	Reverse the sorting order.

     -s 	Accounting information is summarized on the summary accounting
		file; this summarization is necessary since on a busy system,
		the accounting file can grow by several lines per day.

     names	Statistics are only printed for user(s) name; usually, statistics
 are printed for every user who has used any paper.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /var/account/?acct  raw accounting files
     /var/account/?_sum  summary accounting files
     /etc/printcap	 printer capability data base
