```I didn't follow your question in detail, but it sounds like the place
to start is ?match and friends: ?intersect, ?setdiff, ?"%in%" ...

I could easily  calculate them in the Excel for small data set, but I have very big data set. so that I was wondering to use R for this calculation. But I could not figure it out to write these logical function in R.  Would you provide me some hints?
