easily compare patch level

Hello

Does anyone know of an easy way to compare patch levels between 2 solaris 9 machines

we currently have a prod and a test machine and I can't seem to find an easy way to compare the patches on them

if I do a diff on the output of each machine's showrev -p its really not that accurate since some patches are listed that were made obsolete by other pathches.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Take the list like this:

showrev -p | cut -f 2-2 -d ' ' | sort > list1
do the same for the other system and then use diff to compare the two.
