Why are you using sed when you can use Perl directly?

open my $fh1, '<', "file1" or die "Couldn't read 'file1': $!"; my %delete = map { s/\s*$//; $_ => 1 } <$fh1>; open my $fh2, '<', "file2" or die "Couldn't read 'file2': $!"; while( <$fh2>) { my( $key, $value ) = split /\s*=/; if( ! $delete{ $key }) { print $_; } else { # skip this key }; };

If you want to keep on using sed, my advice is to print all the commands you're launching and then inspecting them or running them from the command line separately.

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.
