     mysqlbug - generate bug report


     This program enables you to generate a bug report and send
     it to Sun Microsystems, Inc. It is a shell script and runs
     on Unix.

     The normal way to report bugs is to visit blue]-], which is the address for our bugs
     database. This database is public and can be browsed and
     searched by anyone. If you log in to the system, you can
     enter new reports. If you have no Web access, you can
     generate a bug report by using the mysqlbug script.

     mysqlbug helps you generate a report by determining much of
     the following information automatically, but if something
     important is missing, please include it with your message.
     mysqlbug can be found in the scripts directory (source
     distribution) and in the bin directory under your MySQL
     installation directory (binary distribution).

     Invoke mysqlbug without arguments:

         shell> mysqlbug

     The script will place you in an editor with a copy of the
     report to be sent. Edit the lines near the beginning that
     indicate the nature of the problem. Then write the file to
     save your changes, quit the editor, and mysqlbug will send
     the report by email.
