       chicken-bug - generates a Chicken Scheme bug report from user input


       chicken-bug [ filename | OPTION ...  ]


       -help  Show usage information.

              Write  bug  report to standard output instead of writing it to a

       -      Read user input from standard input, even if files are given  on
              the command line.


       chicken-bug  generates  a  bug  report  file  that collects user-input,
       optional files and  system  information  obtained  from  the  installed
       CHICKEN  executables  and  libraries. Non-option arguments given on the
       command line are inserted into the bug report. If no option  is  given,
       or  if - has been passed on the command line, then a description of the
       problem is read from standard input,  until  EOF  (CTRL-D)  or  a  line
       consisting only of "." (period) is read.

       The  bug  report  will  be  written to a file in the current directory,
       which should be sent to CHICKEN  maintainers  as  it  contains  various
       useful  bits of information that make it easier to classify the problem

       Bug reports should be as detailed as possible. It is also very  helpful
       to  include  code  that  reproduces  the problem. The more detailed the
       input and the more thorough the description is, the easier you make  it
       for the CHICKEN developers to help you.
