Hi RudiC,

Thanks for your explanation. But got below query.

awk 'NR==FNR {T[$1$2$3]; next} ($2$3$4 in T) {next} 1' file1 file2

Regarding above code. I just found that if content of file1 is zero then its not working. Ideally even if size of file1 is zero it should return all the content of file2.

Yes. If file1 has zero length, it takes file2 as file1 and has nothing left to work upon.
awk 'FILENAME==ARGV[1] {T[$1$2$3]; next} ($2$3$4 in T) {next} 1' file1 file2

This User Gave Thanks to RudiC For This Post:
