Just after falling overboard, whilst sailing across the Atlantic. (Well, actually just after getting back in I suppose. Just after falling in I was floundering about a bit.)

[Cosmic37]: greetings earthlings please can someone improve my pathetic perl knowledge
[Cosmic37]: I have 2 files each with datetime and other data in unknown order and I want to find rows from both files matching by datetime and output them combined/ concatenated
[Corion]: Sure
[Corion]: Do you have any specific interests or general Perl knowledge?
[Cosmic37]: should I slurp? should I grep? Noble Lords I wish you good karma and beg your advice
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Ah, see perlfaq4, about How do I compute the intersection of two arrays
[Cosmic37]: I am out of practice; I use Perl for scientific programming for number crunching
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Basically, you read one file into a hash, keyed by your key, and then match the lines from the second file to that hash
[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
