Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Compare content between two files Post 302744827 by Mrinal Mondal on Saturday 15th of December 2012 01:43:56 AM
Hi Folks thanks for your prompt reply.

Now I am getting the same contain repeated in different files, but there is another problem raised with it.

If I run the command specified by Scrutinizer and Vikram. It is giving me output of every repeated files, but it is not a uniq name.

I believe I need to more precise to explain the scenario, I am changing a little in my file structure example.

Let me explain. If I do
Code:
$cat File1
Milestone1
Milestone1
Milestone2
Milestone3
Milestone4
Milestone5
Milestone6

Code:
$cat File2
Milestone1
Milestone12
Milestone13
Milestone14
Milestone5
Milestone1
Milestone16

Now if I run the code specified by Scrutinizer and Vikram it is giving me output as
Code:
File2:Milestone1
File2:Milestone1
File2:Milestone5

As I told that I am working with huge number of data. The repeat lines will create trouble for me.

What I require is the out put will be
Code:
File2:Milestone1 , repeated 2 times
File2:Milestone5 , repeated 1 times

is it possible to get the results like that?

NAME
paps - UTF-8 to PostScript converter using Pango SYNOPSIS
paps [options] files... DESCRIPTION
paps reads a UTF-8 encoded file and generates a PostScript language rendering of the file. The rendering is done by creating outline curves through the pango ft2 backend. OPTIONS
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. --landscape Landscape output. Default is portrait. --columns=cl Number of columns output. Default is 1. --font=desc Set the font description. Default is Monospace 12. --rtl Do rtl layout. --paper ps Choose paper size. Known paper sizes are legal, letter, a4. Default is A4. --bottom-margin=bm Set bottom margin in postscript points (1/72 inch). Default is 36. --top-margin=tm Set top margin. Default is 36. --left-margin=lm Set left margin. Default is 36. --right-margin=rm Set right margin. Default is 36. --help Show summary of options. --header Draw page header for each page. --markup Interpret the text as pango markup. --encoding=ENCODING Assume the documentation encoding is ENCODING. --lpi Set the lines per inch. This determines the line spacing. --cpi Set the characters per inch. This is an alternative method of specifying the font size. --stretch-chars Indicates that characters should be stretched in the y-direction to fill up their vertical space. This is similar to the texttops behaviour. AUTHOR
