31.SH DESCRIPTION
32
33.I chicken-bug
34generates a bug report file that collects user-input, optional
35files and system information obtained from the installed CHICKEN
36executables and libraries. Non-option arguments given on the command line
37are inserted into the bug report. If no option is given, or if
38.B \-
39has been passed on the command line, then a description of the problem
40is read from standard input, until EOF (CTRL-D) is read.
41
42The report will be automatically e-mailed to the CHICKEN maintainers,
43if an SMTP connection can be established. If no connection can be
44made, the bug report will be written to a file in the current directory,
45which should be sent to CHICKEN maintainers as it contains various
46useful bits of information that make it easier to classify the
47problem described.
48
49Bug reports should be as detailed as possible. It is also very helpful
50to include code that reproduces the problem. The more detailed the input
51and the more thorough the description is, the easier you make it for
52the CHICKEN developers to help you.
