FAQ 2.16 Where do I send bug reports?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

This is an excerpt from the latest version perlfaq2.pod, which
comes with the standard Perl distribution. These postings aim to
reduce the number of repeated questions as well as allow the community
to review and update the answers. The latest version of the complete
perlfaq is at http://faq.perl.org .


2.16: Where do I send bug reports?

    If you are reporting a bug in the perl interpreter or the modules
    shipped with Perl, use the *perlbug* program in the Perl distribution or
    mail your report to perlbug@perl.org or at http://rt.perl.org/perlbug/ .

    For Perl modules, you can submit bug reports to the Request Tracker set
    up at http://rt.cpan.org .

    If you are posting a bug with a non-standard port (see the answer to
    "What platforms is perl available for?"), a binary distribution, or a
    non-standard module (such as Tk, CGI, etc), then please see the
    documentation that came with it to determine the correct place to post

    Read the perlbug(1) man page (perl5.004 or later) for more information.


The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
