Here is my own "clever way", and you can even use it on more than 2 lists.
my %presence; my $b = 1; foreach my $ary (\@list1, \@list2, \@list3) { foreach(@$ary) { $presence{$_} |= $b; } } continue { $b *= 2; }
Now you can grep in keys %presence. Each value will indicate in what lists the item was found, as a bit mask. Examples:
@list1only = grep { $presence{$_} == 1 } keys %presence; @list2only = grep { $presence{$_} == 2 } keys %presence; @list3only = grep { $presence{$_} == 4 } keys %presence; @lists1and2only = grep { $presence{$_} == 1+2 } keys %presence; @inall = grep { $presence{$_} == 1+2+4 } keys %presence; # etc

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
