I was reading an old UNIX manual and one of the chapters was on UNIX printing systems. I am used to the BSD system(lpr/lpd) system, and found the
pac command kind of cool. If you do not know what
pac does, it gathers info for print jobs, and will calculate a printing price for the print jobs. The pricing model is customizable, and can be changed. Output would look something like:
Login pages/feet runs price user1 10.00 1 $10.00 user2 100.00 3 $300.00 user3 1.00 2 $2.00
later, the book went on to describe the SVR4 print system, which usesthe
lp command to send a file to the print queue, and the
lpsched daemon to print. But I have not seen any sort of
pac command for the SVR4 system. Is there one? How do I use it?
