'ppa' is a per-user prepaid account balance for Internet cafes, public Internet centers, shell accounts, or dial-up hosts. It tracks connect time, payments, and miscellaneous charges. It uses operating system accounting files (wtmp) to debit accounts, gives up-to-the-minute account balances on a per-user Web page, and accepts payments and charges from an administrator. Connect time information and charges are created automatically; other entries are done manually. Information is stored in a plain text database; no database package is required.
