I assume "their reply" means Werner Lemberg's message here:


i'm not seeing a solution in either location, and I didn't modify my
.cshrc file as Jon had, so i don't know how to get around this, I don't
know what causes the hang in the first place.

It's a problem related to the groff source code, and it's not something Autoconf can fix. The attached patch might fix it. I haven't tested this patch, as I stopped using csh over 35 years ago and never want to go back. I think groff would be better off if it didn't worry about csh at all.

Attachment: groff.patch
