PAC(8)                      System Manager's Manual                     PAC(8)



NAME
       pac - printer/ploter accounting information

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/pac [ -Pprinter ] [ -pprice ] [ -s ] [ -r ] [ -c ] [ name ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

FILES
       /usr/adm/?acct      raw accounting files
       /usr/adm/?_sum      summary accounting files

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