Using a hash is probably a better way to do it. Something like this may be what you want:

use warnings; use strict; my %Ids; open (IDS, "$ARGV[0]") or die "unable to open file $!\n"; while (<IDS>) { chomp; $Ids {$_} = undef; } close IDS; open (GENES, "$ARGV[1]") or die "unable to open file $!\n"; my @genes; while (<GENES>) { if (/^>/) { unshift @genes, substr "$_ ", 1; } else { $genes[0] .= $_; } } close GENES; foreach my $gene (@genes) { my ($id) = $gene =~ /^(.*?)[,\s]/g; next if ! defined $id; ++$Ids{$id}; } foreach (sort keys %Ids) { print "$_\n" if defined $Ids{$_}; }

Assumes sample data given in original node.

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
