^ Excerpt from manpage In reality, dc does not implement this behavior at all. Instead, it just treats A-F as 10-15. A-F ← not used as commands a-f ← some are used
I would prefer to just correct the manpage, but it was suggested it might be a good idea to compare behavior with other versions of dc.
