CROSSING DATA BETWEEN TWO TEXTFILES

Dear Experts,

This is not a homework. I think this needs a hard answer, but possible!

How I do to crossing data between two textfiles?


The textfile one have a text, esp. a large text, for example:
´ This should be concise, but give enough information that an expert will get an idea of whether or not they have the expertise to answer your question.  ´

The textfile two have a list of words, in this way, for example:


concise,n,II
have,v,II
idea,n,I
nevertheless,c,III
the,a,I

The program needs crossing the data between these files and
generates a third file with a stop list of the words from textfile one
found in textfile two, more the information after commas.

It will generate a fourth file with a resume based on information
from textfile two after 2nd comma(I, II and III), in this way:

´The are X words with I.
There are Y words with II
There are Z words with III.

If you are able to do I want, congratulations and more points! You will
contribute to maintain live of MSDOS!

Thank you.

How large is textfile2?

Will all the words in textfile 1 appear in textfile 2?

Basic idea

// Declare variables
Type
   wordlist = Array[1..100] of string;
   
Var
    Word,
    WordId       : string;
    words         : wordlist ;
    wordtype     : wordlist ;
    WordCount,
    CountI,
    CountII,
    CountIII : integer;

    Infile, Outfile   : Text;

Begin
   Open the input file for reading as InFile
   WordCount := 0;
   while Not EOF(Infile)
   begin
       Read a line from the file
       Parse the Word out
       WordCount := WordCount  + 1;
       words[WordCount] :=   Word;
       Skip the comma, the letter, and the comma
       Read the WordID
       wordtype[WordCount] :=   WordId;
    end
    Close the input file
 
    Sort the word list

    Open the Other file for reading as Infile
   while Not EOF(Infile)
   begin
       Read a word from the file
       Search for the word in the list
       If WordType[Index] = "I" then
           CountI := CountI + 1;
       else If WordType[Index] = "II" then
           CountII := CountII + 1;
       else  
           CountIII := CountIII + 1;
    end
       wordtype[WordCount] :=   WordId;
    end while
    Close the input file
 
    Create the other file
    Output the lines

Dear mlmcc,

I have not Internet in my home! I am seeing your script now. I will test it
in my home.

I want to know how many words from textfile 1 appear in textfile 2.

Yours algorithm is not full. I imagine it is necessary three files. The fiest textfile with a list os words, such as:

the
as
for
in
want

A second file with another list of words, such as:

as
welcome
in
thesaurus


A third textfile with the results of the common words in the twoprior files,

´as´and ´in´

OK? How I add it in your algorithm?
