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 <email@example.com> or posted to the Usenet
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>.
