Re: emacs -nw hangs on redirect

    I'm running emacs 21.2.1 on a linux ix86.

If it is capable of running Emacs, it must have more than just Linux
on it.  Linux is a kernel, and a kernel alone is not capable of
running programs like Emacs.  You must have the GNU/Linux operating
system installed.

When you call the entire system "Linux", you give the system's
principal developers none of the credit.  And yet here you are asking
us to help you out.  Please start treating us right.  (See
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-linux-faq.html for more explanation.)

    in bash, the command
    emacs -nw > out.txt

-nw tells emacs to use an ordinary tty.  I doubt it could manage with
a file that is not a tty.  Probably what you want is -batch.  Please
see the Emacs manual for documentation of these options.
