in reply to Compare 2 CSV files and create a new CSV file out of comparision

The proper way to do it is to read the first file, and use a hash to store the contents. Use the vm_name column as key and the whole row as a value.

Then read the second file line by line, and look up the vmname in the hash you created earlier, and print the joined columns to the third file.

    Hi. could you get me a sample code structure. Sorry, I am asking for too much, but I didn't quite understand "Use the vm_name column as key and the whole row as a value." part. Thanks again for your time.
