I am using below command to get the difference after sorting both the files,

Code:
join -v 2 < (sort a.txt) < (sort b.txt)

but i am getting syntax error near unexpected token `('

Please help

Please wrap all code, files input & output/errors in CODE tags.
It makes it far easier to read and preserves multiple spaces for indenting or fixed-width data.

Hello ranabhavish,

Not sure what you are trying to do here but from error vice could you please try following commands(removing the space between < and ().
Code:
join -v 2 <(sort a.txt) <(sort b.txt)

Thanks,
