Appendix A Reporting Bugs

Please report all bugs you find in Bash.  But first, you should make
sure that it really is a bug, and that it appears in the latest version
of Bash.  The latest version of Bash is always available for FTP from

   Once you have determined that a bug actually exists, use the
'bashbug' command to submit a bug report.  If you have a fix, you are
encouraged to mail that as well!  Suggestions and 'philosophical' bug
reports may be mailed to <> or posted to the Usenet
newsgroup 'gnu.bash.bug'.

   All bug reports should include:
   * The version number of Bash.
   * The hardware and operating system.
   * The compiler used to compile Bash.
   * A description of the bug behaviour.
   * A short script or 'recipe' which exercises the bug and may be used
     to reproduce it.

'bashbug' inserts the first three items automatically into the template
it provides for filing a bug report.

   Please send all reports concerning this manual to <chet@po.CWRU.Edu>.
