Save 2 files' diff as 3rd fileby ybiC (Prior)
|on Mar 03, 2002 at 16:57 UTC||Need Help??|
ybiC has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
The following chunk is intended to parse 2 logfiles for their diff, and write the results as a third file. One origianl logfile contains combined STDOUT+STDERR and the other contains only STDERR.
But it doesn't do that at all. 8^( Rather, the resulting (small-relative-to-either-original log) file contains an out-of-order hodgepodge from both originals.
