Compare 2 Lists
Posted on 2013-11-14
I need to take two text files. One has one column of data, one word per line. The second one has a number of words per line, but the first line (separated by white space) is the only thing I am interested in removing any lines that do not have "DD" in the word. I would like to print a list of any words that appear in 1.txt that do not appear in 2.txt. They might be in any order, and might appear any number of times. Is there an easy way of doing this?
Since the only work that has DD in it, that appears in 1.txt that does not appear in 2.txt is DDblah, only DDlah would be printed.
