CREATING A BUG REPORT

Use InformixTechSupport -b [class] [tests ...] to create a basic bug report. The file Notes/bug.reports contains detailed information about the classes of bug reports (which are A, B, C, and D). If you have a class D bug, then you can list the specific test(s) which are failing on the command line.

The output contains most of the information that will be needed to debug your problem. If your problem is not with the standard tests, then you should aim to create a standalone reproduction of your problem and include that test with your bug report.

You may need to edit the output; you may certainly add comments in the 'Optional comments' section. The output is written to standard output only. It is never sent anywhere unless you actually choose to send it.

If you do send the report, please put "DBD::Informix - It Works" in the subject line and send the report to dbd.informix@gmail.com (this is a change of email address from the instructions in previous versions of DBD::Informix).
