which contain system statistics according
to command name and login id, respectively.
This condensation is desirable because on a

The summary files are normally read before
the accounting file, so that reports include
all available information.
If file names are supplied, they are read instead of
After each file is read, if the summary
files are being updated, an updated summary will
be saved to disk.
Only one report is printed,
after the last file is processed.
The labels used in the output indicate the following, except
where otherwise specified by individual options:
Average number of I/O operations per execution
Sum of user and system time, in minutes
CPU-time averaged core usage, in 1k units
CPU storage integral, in 1k-core seconds
Real time, in minutes
System time, in minutes
Total number of I/O operations
User time, in minutes

those used only once under the name ``***other''.
If printing command statistics, sort output by the sum of user and system
time divided by number of calls.
In addition to the number of calls and the user, system and real times
for each command, print their percentage of the total over all commands.
If printing command statistics, sort by the average number of disk
If printing user statistics, print the average number of
disk I/O operations per user.
If printing command statistics, sort and print by the total number
of disk I/O operations.

The formats of the summary files created by this version of

This is not considered a problem, however, because the accounting record
format has changed as well (since user ids are now 32 bits).
