in reply to Quote and Quote-like Operators

What do you mean, pick [] for qw? That you've seen people pick different delimiters for different quotelike operators and stick with them? I've not seen this happen. But the whole point of freedom in delimiters is that you choose something that makes sense for whatever you're quoting in that instance. Just like s/// is silly on pathnames (because of "leaning toothpick syndrome"), qw() is a bad choice if one of the things you're quoting is ")-:".

[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?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
[Cosmic37]: is there a webpage for full CB for this chat rather than side panel chat?
[Cosmic37]: thank you for advice
