NAME
     pac -- printer/plotter accounting information

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

DESCRIPTION
     The pac utility 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.

     Options and operands available:

     -Pprinter	Accounting is done for the named printer.  Normally, account-
		ing is done for	the default printer (site dependent) or	the
		value of the environment variable PRINTER is used.

     -c		Cause the output to be sorted by cost; usually the output is
		sorted alphabetically by name.

     -m		Cause 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.

     -pprice	The value price	is used	for the	cost in	dollars	instead	of the
		default	value of 0.02 or the price specified in	/etc/printcap.

     -r		Reverse	the sorting order.

     -s		Accounting information is 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.

     names	Statistics are only printed for	user(s)	name; usually, statis-
		tics are printed for every user	who has	used any paper.

FILES
     /var/account/?acct	 raw accounting	files
     /var/account/?_sum	 summary accounting files
     /etc/printcap	 printer capability data base

SEE ALSO
     printcap(5)

HISTORY
     The pac utility appeared in 4.0BSD.

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