    How very quickly compare two text files ?

    How very quickly (only 1 click e.g. script(?)) compare two text files

    file1.txt (Links URL)
    file2.txt (Links URL)
    Result: file3.txt Compare and show all (Links URL) that are missing in the file file1.txt

    Example:

    file1.txt
    http://website.com/id1
    http://website.com/id2
    http://website.com/id2000
    http://website.com/id65487


    file2.txt
    http://website.com/id1
    http://website.com/abc-1
    http://website.com/id2
    http://website.com/id3

    Result:
    file3.txt
    http://website.com/abc-1
    http://website.com/id3

    I suggest you look online at the very many programs already offering this function rather than trying to write (yet another) script. There's fortunately no need :)

    I personally use WinMerge: Download WinMerge - WinMerge

    You may prefer others.

    WinMerge, do not expect super fast(instant) results.
    A) Comparison
    B) Remove Duplicate
    C) Create the output file

    3-boring steps

    (1-step) super simple Python script
    1 click and finished result
