Actually, the document is being formatted and written to disk,
though you'd never know it from what is output to screen.  I
have GCG 8.0 here on an old dinosaur VMS system, and I run
RED from the command line.  It takes a while to format the
output .PS file.

The header messages can be ignored.  I had a list of several
hundred output to screen when formatting the entire Program
Manual, and when I called GCGsupport, they first told me I
wasn't seeing what I was seeing.  Then, they told me to ignore
them, since the header files RED was trying to INCLUDE were
for UNIX platforms.  [does multiple IF stmnts come to your
mind?  they did mine!]

Relax and be patient.  RED will finish.
