I have an embedded linux system using Busybox (OpenWRT) - so commands are limited. I have two files that look like:
aaaaaa bbbbbb cccccc mmmmmm nnnnnn
mmmmmm nnnnnn yyyyyy zzzzzz
I need to merge these 2 lists into 1 file, and remove the duplicates. I don't have diff (space is limited) so we get to use the great
grep (or other tools that might be included in a standard Busybox instance). Going to a merge file like:
command1 > mylist.merge command2 mylist.merge > originallist
is totally ok. It doesn't have to be a single-line command.
