RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for octave-bug (redhat section 1)

octave-bug(1)			     General Commands Manual			    octave-bug(1)

NAME
       octave-bug - report a bug in GNU Octave

SYNOPSIS
       octave-bug [-s subject]

DESCRIPTION
       octave-bug  is  a  shell  script  to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning
       Octave in a standard format.  octave-bug  is  typically	invoked  by  the  Octave  command
       bug_report  which is intended to be called interactively from within Octave. This provides
       the best way to submit a bug report for Octave. It creates a template bug report file  and
       starts an editor on that file.  The bug report will be sent to the bug-octave mailing list
       once the editing has been completed (this assumes of  course  that  your  system  can  use
       email). However, the user could also call octave-bug outside of Octave.

       Please read the `Bugs' chapter in the Octave manual to find out how to submit a bug report
       that will enable the Octave maintainers to fix the problem.  If you are unable to use  the
       bug_report   command,   send   your   message   to   the  bug-octave  mailing  list,  bug-
       octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu.

OPTIONS
       -s subject
	      Specify a subject line for the bug report.  Spaces in the subject must be quoted.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       octave-bug uses the environment variables USER, EDITOR, and PAGER which can  be	used  for
       customization.

VERSION
       This document was last revised for Octave version 2.0.16.
