Basic Information on mirbug
Task: mirbug (file: mirbug)
Purpose: Send mail about bugs to appropriate person
Categories: user utility
Usage: mirbug [-r] [-b] taskname [file]
Mirbug allows the user to send bug reports to the appropriate people.
mirbug creates a template report or prepends it to the optional file
and then starts an editor. The editor is that indicated by the VISUAL
or EDITOR environment variable, or vi if neither environment variable
After exiting the editor the user is given the option of not mailing
the report by using ^C. If this is not done within 5 seconds, the
report is mailed to the person responsible, to a central address and
to the sender. If ^C is used, the report is saved.
taskname should be one of the miriad tasks/tools/scripts or the
file (optional) is the name of a previously created file containing
the report. This must be the second argument.
-r The -r switch causes mirbug to run the task, and include
any output in the template bug report.
-b Do not invoke an editor -- just mail the template.
