How to compare two columns in a file.
I am trying to write a script which compares a log file with reference file. The log file has a table, the LHS of the table are constants strings and RHS of table values changes if there are any changes in configuration.
Here I am looking for a script which compares test.log file ( whose RHS data-types are known prior whether it is digit or string) with test.Ref which is reference file for test.log file. It will be really helpful for me if any of you give some idea about writing this script.
What is the output required ?
Does diff not do what you want? eg.
