Hi John,

These two functions might get you started.
They return common or uncommon LINES in two lists: you will adapt  
them ;-)

function CommonList plist1,plist2
   local tArray1,tArray2,tCommonList
   ------
   put empty into tArray1
   put empty into tArray2
   -----
   repeat for each line tLine in plist1
     put 1 into tArray1[tLine]
   end repeat
   repeat for each line tLine in plist2
     put 1 into tArray2[tLine]
   end repeat
   -----
   get the keys of tArray1
   repeat for each line tLine in it
     if tArray2[tLine] = 1 then
       put tLine & cr after tCommonList
     end if
   end repeat
   -----
   delete char -1 of tCommonList
   return tCommonList
end CommonList
-----------------------------------
function UnCommonList plist1,plist2
   local tArray1,tArray2,tUncommonList
   ------
   put empty into tArray1
   put empty into tArray2
   -----
   repeat for each line tLine in plist1
     put 1 into tArray1[tLine]
   end repeat
   repeat for each line tLine in plist2
     put 1 into tArray2[tLine]
   end repeat
   -----
   get the keys of tArray1
   repeat for each line tLine in it
     if tArray2[tLine] = 0 then
       put tLine & cr after tUncommonList
     end if
   end repeat
   -----
   get the keys of tArray2
   repeat for each line tLine in it
     if tArray1[tLine] = 0 then
       put tLine & cr after tUncommonList
     end if
   end repeat
   -----
   delete char -1 of tUncommonList
   return tUncommonList
end UnCommonList
