Ah yes! Good point. Thanks.

EDIT: But wait.... Your suggestion of grep { $_ eq $unique } @first_list_new isn't detecting any actual matches for me.

EDIT #2: Nevermind... tyop. er, typo.

    It's not clear why this would be. grep {$_ eq $unique} should be exactly equivalent to grep /^$unique$/, as long as $unique doesn't have any regex metacharacters--and it doesn't appear to in the sample data.

      Whoa, you are write. I had a typo. I left the //'s around $unique. Oops. Maybe that means it is bedtime for me!
