NAME
sendbug - mail a system bug report to 4bsd-bugs
SYNOPSIS
sendbug [ address ]
DESCRIPTION
Bug reports sent to `4bsd-bugs@Berkeley.EDU' are intercepted by a program which expects bug reports to conform to a standard format. Sendbug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports in the correct format. Sendbug works by invoking the editor specified by the environment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appropriate fields and exit the editor. The default editor is vi(1). Sendbug then mails the completed report to `4bsd-bugs@Berkeley.EDU' or the address specified on the command line.
FILES
/usr/ucb/bugformat contains the bug report outline
