Show difference between two number


I would like to show the difference between two numbers. For example.

1 7
2 10
0 0
6 7

I would like a third field showing the difference between the numbers as below:

1 7 6
2 10 8
0 0 0
6 7 1

How do I do this?

Hi, I need a command that would let ls show number of lines in each file rather than file size in KBs. I tried using wc -l as a source of input to ls but I found a problem cutting the file name since wc generates a space delimited list. Any suggestions? Thanks. GmMike. (1 Reply)
