There are many of you, and only one of me, so I need help with the bug reports. The most important thing is that I must be able to reproduce the problem. If I can't reproduce it, I can't fix it (assuming there is something to fix in the first place - many 'bug reports' could have been avoided by actually reading the documentation!).

If the problem relates to the C compiler, Resource compiler, Linker, and so on: attach the smallest set of input files that will reproduce the problem. It should be possible to use the files without having to download additional packages. (Example: C compiler bugs can usually be demonstated in 5 - 10 lines of code, so try to narrow it down as much as possible...)

If the problem relates to the Integrated Environment (IDE), try to provide step-by-step instructions how to reproduce the problem. I can't guess what you did. If you don't know - I don't know. A screenshot will almost always help, but is usually not enough by itself...

Thank you for your help and understanding!
