Chuck, Here is one way this can be done: In[71]:= DeleteCases[(Flatten[Cases[data2, {#1[[1]], _}]] & ) /@ data1, {}] Out[71]= {{1, 2}, {2, 3}, {3, 4}, {4, 5}} Cheers, Brian :In article <8jc73k$dg3 at smc.vnet.net>, materialsscientist at my-deja.com wrote: > Hello, > > I have 2 lists of data: > > for example > data1={{1,1},{1.5,1.5},{2,2},{3,3},{4,4},{5,5}} > > data2={{1,2},{2,3},{3,4},{4,5},{6,7},{7,8}} > > I want to do a point by point comparision, so I > need to reduce both data1 and data2 so that > common x data in the {x,y} pairs for each list > remain. > > Thus the lists should look like this: > > data1={{1,1},{2,2},{3,3},{4,4}} > data2={{1,2},{2,3},{3,4},{4,5}} > > What function(s) would to something like this? > > Thanks, > > Chuck > > Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ > Before you buy. > > Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
