One answer is two write two loops, one nested in the other with a conditional in the middle seeing if they are equal. You should attempt the details yourself. Feels like homework/test/exam/interview.

comment Multi-Workstation Setup - how to take my system with me efficiently
ok so you are a programmer. That's good to know. Over 30 years I've not found a truly remote system isn't maintainable and it's just better to maintain stuff manually with setup files. Yes it's not ideal and has it's own downsides but it's what has worked best for me. I divide my time between osx and ubuntu so I have the challenge of making sure my .bashrc works well for both and it easily readable and maintainable. This file and others are available at github.com/durrantm/setups

@don_crissti yes given the question had been closed I was seeing if it could be reworded as a different question.
