awk 'BEGIN{ while ( getline < "parameter.file" ) { arr[$0]++ } }{ if ( !( $0 in arr ) ) { print } }' data.file

Hi , Thanks fo you help

I am rewritting the requirement once again

i am executing a command autorep -j % and redirecting the ouput to one file

autorep -j % -q > data1.txt

data1.txt has all the information which is avaiable in the database

and have a parameter file which has these lines (b.txt)

Once i run the shell script with the command included

autorep -j % -q > data1.txt , it should read from the parameter file and should produce another output data2.txt , and those ouput should not have the lines which are in b.txt

Can anyone help me on this !!

Thanks once again
