- Dec 3, 2013You may also want to look at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/ they have newer updates/builds and many more tools. Not so quick to install though.

Again, thank you both.Problem solved!@Robert: Thanks for the reference to the Unix ports. I used NoteTab to separate every word in the second file onto a line of its own then sorted while discarding duplicates. Then the comm command gave an incredibly fast result.Hi Axel and Robert,
Getting back to this problem after being occupied elsewhere.@Axel: Thank you for the idea for the structure of a clip.
Side benefit: now I have a library of Unix utilities on my Windows PC.

Take a look at a port of the Unix utility "comm," e.g from the
UnxUtils at http://sourceforge.net/projects/unxutils/ You do have to
sort the files first. Then:
Usage: comm [OPTION]... LEFT_FILE RIGHT_FILE
Compare sorted files LEFT_FILE and RIGHT_FILE line by line.
-1 suppress lines unique to left file
-2 suppress lines unique to right file
-3 suppress lines unique to both files
--help display this help and exit
--version output version information and exit
You put sort and comm in a batch file and wrap them in a clip.
