use paste command.

Code:
$ paste input1 input2
x       y
x       x
        x
        z


If you want the output sorted, use sort first and then give it as input to paste.

Hey you misunderstood the problem. in the wanted output x is matching with x see. paste just prints the two inputs side by side.

I think
Code:
join -j1 -v1 input1 input2

could do some thing. Now its working fine
