How do you: 1) compare two ASCII files line by line, 2) switch the position of surnames & first names
Posted on 2004-09-13
I have a regular function to carry out whereby firstly I need to:
1) compare two ASCII files line by line, searching for differences, possibly marking them, or even better removing them them reporting back a further list of removals.
2) In another ASCII list, switch the position of surnames & first names and output a new list.
How can I achieve this, is there one or two items of software out there that will assist?
