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.

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

[choroba]: thezip should be ok.
[thezip]: It seemed so, choroba, but I don't want to confuse anyone (especially myself!)
[choroba]: thezip unless something like this happens to you.
[thezip]: I don't intend on doing any offline development in the Czech Republic soon, so i think I'm safe!
[thezip]: :-)
[choroba]: Yeah, there are countries with wifi everywhere
