| Hi all,
| I have 2 problems.
| 1. I have 2 files foo and bar with a word on each line.
| foo -> 5000 words
| bar -> 2300 words.
| Now I want to *find all the words in bar that are missing in foo* and
| put them in 3rd file foo.bar.
| ( So, foo.bar will have a maximum of 2300 words. )
| (both the files are sorted)
| Please remember I don't want words unique to file foo. I want words in
| bar which are not in foo.
If you're on Unix, you can use:
comm -13 foo bar > foo.bar
| 2. In another file, I have few lines seperated by a single tab. Now I
| want to delete all the lines ( and NOT just the tab ) which start with
| a tab. I tried :1,$/^^I/d but managed to delete just one line at a time.
| Can someone help me on this?
| Thanks a lot for the help in advance and bye.
| With warm regards,
