Algorithm::Diff Question

by aartist (Scribe)
on Jul 11, 2011 at 18:47 UTC ( #913749=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
aartist has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using Algorithm::Diff to compare two text files. The order of the data blocks in the text files have been messed up. Depend upon which sequence I specify first, the traverse_sequences generates different results. Is there a way to get the intersection of these results? That will show true difference between files.

Thanks.

    Can you sort the files before comparing them?
      That works as expected. Thank you.
