I have two files, let's say
Locus_1 Locus_2 Locus_3
3 3 Locus_1 Locus_40 etc_849 3 2 Locus_2 Locus_94 * 2 2 Locus_6 Locus_1 * 2 3 Locus_3,Locus_4 Locus_50 * 3 3 Locus_9 Locus_3 etc_667
I want to do a
grep -F for the first file only on the third column of the second file (in the original
File2 fields are separated by tabs), such as the output should be:
3 3 Locus_1 Locus_40 etc_849 3 2 Locus_2 Locus_94 * 2 3 Locus_3,Locus_4 Locus_50 *
How can I do it?
To Chaos: no, the comma is not a mistake. I can have more than one Locus_* in a column - and in case the second Locus_* (the one after the comma) matches one of the lines of
File1 I want it to be retrieved, too!
