pac - printer/plotter accounting information
/usr/etc/pac [ -cmrs ] [ -Pprinter ] [ -pprice ] [ username... ]
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. The accounting file is taken from the af
field of the printcap entry for the printer. If any usernames are spec-
ified, then statistics are only printed for those users; usually, sta-
tistics are printed for every user who has used any paper.
-c Sort the output by cost; usually the output is sorted alpha-
betically by name.
-m Disregard machine names. Normally, print jobs submitted by a
user from different machines would be counted separately for
-r Reverse the sorting order.
-s Summarize the accounting information on the summary account-
ing file. The name of the summary file is the name of the
accounting file with `_sum' appended to it.
-Pprinter Do accounting for the named printer. If this option is not
used, the printer specified by the PRINTER environment vari-
able will be used if it is present; otherwise accounting is
done for the default printer.
-pprice Use the value price for the cost in dollars per page/foot
instead of the default value of 0.02.
