Nice article. I enjoy your work.
I noticed a problem with one of your published methods for set intersection
sort A B | uniq -d
will report items that are duplicated in either set A or set B as intersections. So one has to make sure A and B are uniq'd first which seems to make the command a bit more complicated and it will run a lot slower.
sort <(sort A | uniq) <(sort B | uniq) | uniq -d
Perhaps you might see a way to do this more efficiently.
Also, the join and comm methods may not work reliably on large data sets. I get no intersection on my Abig and Bbig sets. The nifty grep method seems to work the best.

For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
