>From SunOS4's manpage (dated ~1990):

       head - display first few lines of specified files

       head [ -n ] [ filename...]

       head  copies  the  first  n lines of each filename to the
standard output.  If no
       filename is given, head copies lines from the standard input. 
The default  value
       of n is 10 lines.

I read this as "SunOS4 doesn't support 'head -n1', however I don't have
access to such kind of system anymore and therefore can't verify.
