If I'm not mistaken, ts486 is based on SAS6.06
Any later additions have their version flag.
It is up to you is you want to trawl through earlier changes &
enhancements documentation at each upgrade, to find when a function/format
was introduced. It would be far from straight forward. I know that the
IRR and related functions were first documented in a version 5 usage note,
to the effect that although introduced and documented in SAS/OR (I think)
they were available in Base SAS. ( a bit like the IS860dt, dz formats
which are available now, but not in ts486 (iirc)
