The Program has stopped unexpectedly!

This message is displayed by the Development Environment when the running project crashes.

This is not a bug in your project, but a bug in the interpreter. This message should never occur, but nothing is perfect is this world!

What you can try before reporting the bug:

  • Check your Gambas version, and try to install the latest one provided by your distribution.

  • If you have already the latest version provided by your distribution, try to compile the version located in the source repository.

Automatic report by mail

Since Gambas 3.5, the IDE now displays a dialog when a crash occurs that allows you to send a bug report by mail.

The bug report will include:

  • An archive of the project sources.

  • The contents of the IDE system information dialog.

  • Your project configuration file.

Moreover, if core dumps have been enabled before the crash, and if gdb is installed on your system, a stack backtrace will be added. This is almost mandatory for debugging, so do not hesitate to install gdb and to enable core dumps!

Reporting the bug manually

If everything fails, you must should report the bug, as explained on the Reporting a problem, a bug or a crash page.
