When I type tor in terminal (macOSX), I get this. I want to configure tor but the thing is it gets stuck at 100% and nothing happens then. But the terminal still runs so I assume that it's doing something but nothing happens.

    What exactly are you trying to do? The tor program is different from the Tor Browser. If you’re trying to run the tor program, your results look normal since the SOCKS proxy is now running, but if you’re trying to run the Tor Browser, that is a different program you need to download and install. You can configure tor by editing the torrc file before starting tor. – Steve Apr 3 at 11:50
