I'm pretty sure it's because I tested it.

Solaris 2.6 was in use 15 years ago. I have no machine with Solaris 2.6 anymore.

But SunOS-4.1 supports it and recent Solaris versions support it, so why do you belive that Solaris 2.6 does not?

The text you're responding to refers specifically to Solaris 2.6. Are you sure that your comment is true for Solaris 2.6, specifically?

It seems to be a wrong guess that SCCS as found on Solaris does not support ignored deltas, it does!

BTW: prs -d:DI: was changed by AT&T to be wrong around 1984.
The behavior sice then did not follow the documentation.
We wecided to go back to the documented behavior that is
also required by POSIX.

Some versions of SCCS support ignored deltas and some
do not. HPUX 10.20 does and Siolaris 2.6 does not,
for example.

&quot;delta -g&quot; on Solaris 2.6 just results in a &quot;^Ag&quot; line
with no argument (while on HPUX the seq_no values of
the ignored deltas follow). Also on Solaris 2.6, the
result of &quot;prs -d:DI:&quot; only includes one slash while
for HPUIX there are two.
