       bashbug - report a bug in bash

       bashbug [address]

       bashbug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning bash in
       a standard format.  bashbug invokes the editor specified by the environment variable  EDI-
       TOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appro-
       priate fields and exit the editor.  bashbug  then  mails  the  completed  report  to  bug-
       bash@gnu.org,  or  address.   If  the  report  cannot  be  mailed, it is saved in the file
       dead.bashbug in the invoking user's home directory.

       The bug report format outline consists of several sections.  The  first	section  provides
       information  about  the	machine,  operating system, the bash version, and the compilation
       environment.  The second section should be filled in with a description of the  bug.   The
       third  section  should  be a description of how to reproduce the bug.  The optional fourth
       section is for a proposed fix.  Fixes are encouraged.

       bashbug will utilize the following environment variables if they exist:

       EDITOR Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, bashbug defaults to emacs.

       HOME   Directory in which the failed bug report is saved if the mail fails.
