NAME
     sendbug — mail a system bug report to 4bsd-bugs

SYNOPSIS
     sendbug [address]

DESCRIPTION
     Bug reports sent to `4bsd-bugs@Berkeley.EDU' are intercepted by a program
     which expects bug reports to conform to a standard format.	 Sendbug is a
     shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports in the correct
     format.  Sendbug works by invoking the editor specified by the environ‐
     ment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format out‐
     line. The user must fill in the appropriate fields and exit the editor.
     Sendbug then mails the completed report to `4bsd-bugs@Berkeley.EDU' or
     the address specified on the command line.

ENVIRONMENT
     Sendbug will utilize the following environment variable if it exists:

     EDITOR  Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, sendbug
	     defaults to vi(1).

FILES
     /usr/share/misc/bugformat	Contains the bug report outline.
