This is addressed in perlfaq4 at How do I compute the difference of two arrays. The code there could be adapted to your specific need pretty easily.

Here's the code from perlfaq4:

my (@union, @intersection, @difference); my %count = (); foreach my $element (@array1, @array2) { $count{$element}++ } foreach my $element (keys %count) { push @union, $element; push @{ $count{$element} > 1 ? \@intersection : \@difference } +, $element; }

Here's one way to adapt it.

sub difference { my $array_ref1 = shift; my $array_ref2 = shift; my @difference; foreach my $element (@$array_ref1, @$array_ref2) { $count{$element +}++ }; foreach my $element (keys %count) { push @difference, $element if $count{$element} == 1; } return \@difference; }

(please do test it -- this is untested code.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
