according to the SA 11 and above docs, there seems to be a (slight) difference between running
From the SA 11.0.1 docs:
(Frankly, I can't tell whether both descriptions mean the same thing...)
But in my SQL understanding, both calls should do exactly the same, as all parameters of sa_validate are declared with null as default, and so both calls should be equivalent (and in my tests, they run equally long).
So what's the difference between both calls?
and the statement
As for the documentation, it does seem a bit strange that it would say the same thing twice but in different ways. I believe that Justin is correct and it just an historical thing. I have sent a note to the doc team to remove the duplication.
