NAME
       pac - printer/plotter accounting information

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/pac [ -Pprinter ] [ -pprice ] [ -s ] [ -r ] [ -c ] [ -m ] [ name ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Pac  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.  If any names are specified,
       then statistics are only printed for those users;  usually,  statistics	are  printed  for
       every user who has used any paper.

       The  -P	flag causes accounting to be 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.

       The  -p	flag  causes  the  value  price to be used for the cost in dollars instead of the
       default value of 0.02 or the price specified in /etc/printcap.

       The -c flag causes the output to be sorted by cost; usually the output is sorted alphabet-
       ically by name.

       The -r flag reverses the sorting order.

       The  -s	flag causes the accounting information to be 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.

       The  -m flag causes 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.

FILES
       /usr/adm/?acct	   raw accounting files
       /usr/adm/?_sum	   summary accounting files
       /etc/printcap	   printer capability data base

SEE ALSO
       printcap(5)

BUGS
       The relationship between the computed price and reality is as yet unknown.
