Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Compare content between two files Post 302744647 by Scrutinizer on Friday 14th of December 2012 02:07:07 PM
If I run both scripts on your sample:

Code:
$ cat file1
Milestone1
Milestone2
Milestone3
Milestone4
Milestone5
Milestone6
$ cat file2
Milestone1
Milestone12
Milestone13
Milestone14
Milestone5
Milestone16
$ grep -xFf file1 file2
Milestone1
Milestone5
$ awk 'NR==FNR{A[$1]; next}$1 in A' file1 file2
Milestone1
Milestone5

Perhaps you could cut and paste this back into test input files and see if it works then and to spot the difference with your actual sample?

XZDIFF(1)							     XZ Utils								 XZDIFF(1)

NAME
xzcmp, xzdiff, lzcmp, lzdiff - compare compressed files SYNOPSIS
xzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2] xzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2] lzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2] lzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2] DESCRIPTION
xzcmp and xzdiff invoke cmp(1) or diff(1) on files compressed with xz(1), lzma(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), or lzop(1). All options specified are passed directly to cmp(1) or diff(1). If only one file is specified, then the files compared are file1 (which must have a suffix of a supported compression format) and file1 from which the compression format suffix has been stripped. If two files are specified, then they are uncompressed if necessary and fed to cmp(1) or diff(1). The exit status from cmp(1) or diff(1) is preserved. The names lzcmp and lzdiff are provided for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils. SEE ALSO
cmp(1), diff(1), xz(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), lzop(1), zdiff(1) BUGS
Messages from the cmp(1) or diff(1) programs refer to temporary filenames instead of those specified. Tukaani 2011-03-19 XZDIFF(1)
