Please update to groff 1.19!

With groff 1.19 no changes to TeX's hyphenation file are necessary.

There are several mistakes.  First, you have to switch to a new
language.  Then, the hyphenation codes must be set.  Finally, the
patterns are loaded.  Assuming that the file eshyph.tex is in the
macro path, the following works (I've removed ¿ and ¡) since those
characters can't be part of hyphenation patterns AFAIK.  Doing

  .hcode A á

etc., is a bad idea BTW.  I don't think that you want to make CATALUÑA
equal to cátálúñá w.r.t. hyphenation.

  .hla es
  .hcode á á Á á é é É é í í Í í ó ó Ó ó ú ú Ú ú ñ ñ Ñ ñ
  .hpf eshyph.tex
  .ll 1.6i
