Problem Reporting

Should you have a problem with Eli please e-mail a description to:


When reporting problems, please include the Eli version number (printed when Eli starts up, or available in the distribution in `Eli/pkg/version/version.dg') and the output from running the shell command uname -a on your system. Also, please give complete output illustrating the problem. If necessary, please include relevant specification files.

In some cases it will also be helpful to identify the version of the software in question. Most distributed files have RCS tags embedded in them. Most executables are generated from sources that have an initialized variable containing version information:

char rcsid[] = "$Id: misc.c,v 1.2 88/11/30 12:57:39 bob Exp $";

It is easy to identify the source versions from which binaries have been generated by running the RCS ident utility on them. For example, running ident on `pkg/gla/gla_fe' would yield something like the following:

     $Id: driver.c,v 1.15 1996/03/22 19:28:48 kadhim Exp $
     $Id: dfltclp.c,v 1.8 1994/12/08 03:09:52 tony Exp $
     $Id: source.c,v 2.5 1995/01/16 02:19:21 waite Exp $
Sites that do not have ident can extract this information by one of the following commands:
grep '\$Id:' `file-name'
strings `file-name' | grep '\$Id:'
