 NAME
      acctmerg - merge or add total accounting files

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/acct/acctmerg [options] [file] ...

 DESCRIPTION
      acctmerg reads its standard input and up to nine additional files, all
      in the tacct format (see acct(4)) or an ASCII version thereof.  It
      merges these inputs by adding records whose keys (normally user ID and
      name) are identical, and expects the inputs to be sorted on those
      keys.

    Options
      acctmerg recognizes the following options:

	   -a	   Produce output in ASCII version of tacct.

	   -i	   Input files are in ASCII version of tacct.

	   -p	   Print input with no processing.

	   -t	   Produce a single record that totals all input.

	   -u	   Summarize by user ID, rather than user ID and name.

	   -v	   Produce output in verbose ASCII format, with more precise
		   notation for floating point numbers.

 EXAMPLES
      The following sequence is useful for making ``repairs'' to any file
      kept in this format:

	   acctmerg -v <&lt&lt&lt; file1 >&gt&gt&gt; file2
	       edit file2 as desired ...
	   acctmerg -i <&lt&lt&lt; file2 >&gt&gt&gt; file1
