- Your operating System. You can run the "uname -a" command on many unix systems
The full output of "perldl -V"
If you are reporting a bug with an already installedPDL.If thePDLhas compiled and built but not been installed, you may run "perl -Mblib perldl -V" from the top level of thePDLbuild directory.
The bug description and how to reproduce it.
Short examples using thePDLshells, "pdl2" or "perldl", are excellent! Don't forget to include needed input data (as small as possible) so that the code can be run with a cut and paste.
Other things that are often helpful:
- Details about your operating environment that might be related to the problem
- Exact cut and pasted error or warning messages
- The shortest, clearest code you can manage to write which reproduces the bug described.
- A patch against the latest released version of this distribution which fixes this bug.
Alternatively, send an e-mail report with the above information (including the output of "perldl -V") to "firstname.lastname@example.org". See
