Hello. I noticed that a previous bug report by someone else talked about the
same situation, but I did not like the fix.

DESCRIPTION OF INCORRECT BEHAVIOUR:
sqrt function in EQN seems to behave badly
SUGGESTED FIX [optional]:

= Original Response =
Hmm, the PS output looks fine -- eqn has no other possibility than to
scale the right whole square root glyph, with the result that it looks
far too fat. Only if you use the -Tdvi device you get a decent
looking output because the used TeX font has square root glyphs for
different sizes.
A completely different problem is that your attached PDF output is
completely broken. Using ps2pdf which comes with gs 8.51, I get a
correctly created PDF.

For -Tdvi, I was not able to find a standalone DVI to PostScript converter,
and the only to DVI to PDF converters required a non-standalone library
called kpathsea. I didn't want to mess around with all that stuff, and I
didn't want to install TeX. I just want to have square root working
correctly: it seems as if eqn is giving zero width to the radical sign
(perhaps with \z\(sr or something else) and the upper bar (\z\(rn). I am
running the same version of groff on an Intel-based iMac with Mac OS X
10.4.10.
Thanks!
