Yeah, it's not an obfuscation by any means. Just a nice way to put together a lot of common features. In fact, I'd take it one step further to fulfill one additional monkey wrench thrown in after that posting was made: what if the line appears more than once in either fileA or fileB or both, but you still want only one copy of the line?

Well, the answer is just as straightforward. Remove the dollar from the regex! I'll leave that explanation as an exercise to the clever reader. {grin}

-- Randal L. Schwartz, Perl hacker


update: Bleh! My mistake, the dollar was added to handle this case! I knew I had needed to deal with multiple hits somehow.

Remind me never to post again. {grin}

    [Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, at least you aren't driving. I seem to always be driving somewhere in my dreams and end up at a weird house.
    [robby_dobby]: LA: That's there. But this is work and it's the same thing as falling asleep driving :-)
    [Lady_Aleena]: I love the dream where I was at a huge house and decided to go swimming in the pool, but then the tour group showed up.
    choroba fell asleep while driving half a year ago
    [choroba]: fortunately, only the traffic sign and the car were damaged
    [Discipulus]: fall asleep? coffee time!
    Discipulus when in motorbike it is impossible to fall asleep.. another advantage
