Now on /developer in my folder. failed to understand it again :) Basically it works like this: while[lines left][ take the first line in the left text. find it in the right text. either found [ collect it and all following same lines. save it somewhere and remove both blocks. ][ collect lines until you find one in the right text save them somewhere ] ] do something usefull with the collected blocks.
