B.4 Where to Report Bugs

If you have Octave working at all, the easiest way to prepare a complete bug report is to use the Octave function bug_report. When you execute this function, Octave will prompt you for a subject and then invoke the editor on a file that already contains all the configuration information. When you exit the editor, Octave will mail the bug report for you.

If for some reason you cannot use Octave's bug_report function, send bug reports for Octave to [email protected].

Do not send bug reports to `help-octave'. Most users of Octave do not want to receive bug reports. Those that do have asked to be on the mailing list.

As a last resort, send bug reports on paper to:

     Octave Bugs c/o John W. Eaton
     University of Wisconsin-Madison
     Department of Chemical Engineering
     1415 Engineering Drive
