Can anyone help me with a python script to do this?ok so this is my 1'st list:

78.55.37.235:silben1
125.167.122.99:SVEIF88
174.62.238.99:website6875
114.128.194.42:kikusom1
88.223.37.157:bobikas13
93.86.62.242:Perftech10

This is my 2'nd list

78.55.37.235
100.100.100.100
200.200.200.200
88.223.37.157
93.86.62.242

So we have 3 lines that exist in both lists,the output.txt  should look like this:

78.55.37.235:silben1
88.223.37.157:bobikas13
93.86.62.242:Perftech10

thank you

P.S.
I hope the script will handle big files like : 200 mb

Here is one code that solve your problem:
with open('f1.txt', 'r') as f1, open('f2.txt', 'r') as f2, open('output.txt', 'w') as o1:
    check_list = [item.replace("\n", "") for item in f2]
    for line in f1:
        ip,name = line.split(':')
        if ip in check_list:
            o1.write(line)

Open in new window


The only assumption is related to the file 2 (which contains ips only), that could not be so big. Although I think that 200mb files will be piece of cake for this script.

Try this:
with open('f1.txt', 'r') as f1, open('f2.txt', 'r') as f2, open('output.txt', 'w') as o1:
    check_list = [item.replace("\n", "") for item in f2]
    for line in f1:
        ip = line.split(':')
        if ip[0] in check_list:
            o1.write(line)
