in reply to ignore duplicates and show unique values between 2 text files

If you have TWO files, then you would do "++" on the first, and "--" on the second...

use strict; use warnings; my $file1 = <<FILE1; 261293 'snow > equipment' 261293 'snow > equipment > boots' 261293 'snow > equipment > facemasks' 261293 'snow > equipment > goggles' 261293 'snow > equipment > helmets' 261293 'surf > accessories > books' FILE1 my $file2 = <<FILE2; 261293 'snow > equipment' 261293 'snow > equipment > boots' 261293 'snow > equipment > facemasks' 261293 'snow > equipment > goggles' 261293 'surf > accessories > books' FILE2 my %uniq; $uniq{$_}++ for split /\n/, $file1; $uniq{$_}-- for split /\n/, $file2; print join "\n", grep { $uniq{$_} } keys %uniq; print "\n";

    this only works if lines are already unique within their files.

    i.a.w. 2-1 is true but means the line appeared in both files...
