Now on /developer in my folder. failed to understand it again :)
Basically it works like this:
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.
