Post Shell Script for CSV file comparision


Hi,
I have 2 CSV files. let say emp_data_Jan.csv (will contain the data of employees till Jan) and emp_data_feb.csv (will contain the data of employees till Feb). I need a Shell script which can read both these files and compare the data between emp_data_Jan.csv and emp_data_feb.csv. After comparision i need the output data in new CSV file. Output data will be records which are present in emp_data_Feb.csv and not in emp_data_Jan.csv. Can any one help me on this.

Thanks in Advance

Regards
Arvind

Try reading 'man comm', I believe comm in the program you need for this. Probably something like:

Code:
comm -1 emp_data_Feb.csv emp_data_Jan.csv > new.csv
