I am in need of a free text filtering program that takes a master text file, and a suppression/filter text file. For example:

I have a master text list that has:
super mario brothers,10000
megaman,20000
radracer,20000
apple,10000
goomba,30000
zelda,40000

and then I'll have a suppression text list:
20000
40000

For example; So if I run the suppression list on the master list, I would have the following lines remaining:
super mario brothers,10000
apple,10000
goomba,30000




Simply, a text filtering program using partial matches. Anyone have any advice? Thanks!

My guess is that you would be better served putting those items into a database, and then using the filtering rules of the database.
