My apologies, it's not that command that causes the hang (although it
does crash out because SSL has not been provided with any certificates,
so the docs need updating).

The command that hangs is the next in the webpage:

   $ erl -boot /home/me/ssl/start_ssl -proto_dist inet_ssl
         -ssl_dist_opt client_certfile "/home/me/ssl/erlclient.pem"
         -ssl_dist_opt server_certfile "/home/me/ssl/erlserver.pem"
         -ssl_dist_opt verify 1 depth 1
         -sname ssl_test

Again, my apologies,
