Re: silent failure with ?out-of-memory? involving .PSPIC

The previous exchange is below for reference.

I am trying to isolate a pattern, but I find that
just switching order of PSPIC-referenced external
files causes groff to produce *.PS output that breaks
both /Applications/Preview.app and `ps2pdf' (again,
groff does not in any way complain).



% ps2pdf geer.book2.PS geer.book2.PDF
