Help in grep function or similar using awk
I have a list of id;
for example: file 1
I have another data file that contain this ids as headers;
for ex. file2
I wanted to compare file 1 and file 2 such a way that the output list the ids that are present in file 1 but not present in file 2.
For ex. the id 'dfgeu' is present in file 1 but its absent in file 2.
I want to have this id (dfgeu)which is missing in file 2 as header to be outputed.
Is there a way in awk to do this comparison of 2 files?
Please let me know.
