Reporting calc bugs

If you want to:

  • Report a calc bug
  • Submit a calc bug fix patch

The best way to submit a calc bug report is to open a new calc GitHub issue.

When you send your report, please include the following information:

  • A description of the problem
  • Version of calc you are using

    If you cannot compile calc, then look at version.c and report the #define lines that start with:

    • #define MAJOR_VER
    • #define MINOR_VER
    • #define MAJOR_PATCH
    • #define MINOR_PATCH

  • If you modified calc from an official patch, send us the mods you made
  • Type and version of the operating system
  • Type and version of compiler
  • Send us all compiler warnings or errors you find
  • If calc dumped core, try to send us a core dump stack trace
  • cd to the calc source directory, and send the contents of debug.out produced by this command:
    make debug > debug.out 2>&1

Feel free to use the above address to send in bug fixes (in the form of a context diff -u patch).

If you do not want to use calc GitHub, then send Email to:

calc bug report address

PLEASE put following the SPECIAL PHRASE somewhere in your Email Subject line:

calc bug report

You may have additional words in your subject line.

IMPORTANT:

PLEASE use the above SPECIAL PHRASE somewhere in the Subject line or the mail system won't deliver your Email message.

Keep in mind that the best way to report on a calc bug is to use the above mentioned calc GitHub procedure.

Please be patient as we cannot always respond to Email messages quickly.
