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 that you have.

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 bug-bash at 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 at po.CWRU.Edu.
