pac - printer/ploter accounting information
/etc/pac [ -Pprinter ] [ -pprice ] [ -s ] [ -r ] [ -c ] [ name ... ]
Pac reads the printer/plotter accounting files, accumulating the number
of pages (the usual case) or feet (for raster devices) of paper con-
sumed 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. Nor-
mally, 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.
The -c flag causes the output to be sorted by cost; usually the output
is sorted alphabetically 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.
/usr/adm/?acct raw accounting files
/usr/adm/?_sum summary accounting files
