|what is pppcosts?
pppcostsis a small utility that calculates and displays the time (and phone costs) you have been online using a modem or ISDN ppp connection. The time and costs are saved, so that you can use pppcosts to keep track of you monthly phone costs. Cost files for many phone companies are included. If your phone company isn't on the list, then you can create a costfile on your own, which is very easy.
pppcosts uses hardly any system resources; CPU load and memory usage is neglectable!

Another program for Linux called tcharge does about the same as pppcosts. It also has an X interface. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for info or download from ftp://theo.physik.uni-bremen.de/pub/linux/collected/ppp/ Tcharge also comes with many cost files for different phone companies; they are based on the costfiles included in pppcosts.
For suggestions, problems reports, or to submit your changes or costfiles, please contact email@example.com. Of course all my programs are freeware and distributed with complete source.
