Reporting Bugs

If you think you have found a bug in the MP library, please investigate it and report it. We have made this library available to you, and it is not to ask too much from you, to ask you to report the bugs that you find.

There are a few things you should think about when you put your bug report together.

You have to send us a test case that makes it possible for us to reproduce the bug. Include instructions on how to run the test case.

You also have to explain what is wrong; if you get a crash, or if the results printed are incorrect and in that case, in what way.

It is not uncommon that an observed problem is actually due to a bug in the compiler used when building MP; the MP code tends to explore interesting corners in compilers. Therefore, please include compiler version information in your bug report. This can be extracted using `what `which cc`', or, if you're using gcc, `gcc -v'. Also, include the output from `uname -a'.

If your bug report is good, we will do our best to help you to get a corrected version of the library; if the bug report is poor, we won't do anything about it (aside of chiding you to send better bug reports).

Send your bug report to: `bug-gmp@prep.ai.mit.edu'.

If you think something in this manual is unclear, or downright incorrect, or if the language needs to be improved, please send a note to the same address.
