in reply to Comparing two text files

Perl arrays are zero-based. When you split to @array the third column will actually end up in $array[2]. So you may want to review your indexes in the if test to see if you are matching the right columns.

Also, contrary to your explanation, the fields of A.txt actually end up in @text and the fields of B.txt end up in @textpac.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

[Corion]: Hi choroba! I'm somewhat fond of this picture - I think it is Breaking Bad-style even though I haven't watched the series at all ;)
[Corion]: Hmmm - and now that I look at it, the gallery I'm using doesn't produce non-Javascript compatible links in the sense that hotlinking to an image will only work for Javascript enabled...
[Corion]: On the other hand, maybe supporting non-Javascript isn't that much a priority, and I'm not exactly sure how I could make it work for both kinds of browsers without server-side magic
