How to find different elements between two string vectors in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Just like numerical vectors, we can find the different elements between two string vectors if there exists any. For this purpose, we can use setdiff function. For example, if we have a vector V1 that contains a, b, c, d, e, f and the other vector V2 that contains a, e, h, k, l, p, r, u, v, w then the different elements between these two vectors can be found as setdiff(V1,V2).

Example

 Live Demo

x1<-LETTERS[1:26]
x1

Output

[1] "A" "B" "C" "D" "E" "F" "G" "H" "I" "J" "K" "L" "M" "N" "O" "P" "Q" "R" "S"
[20] "T" "U" "V" "W" "X" "Y" "Z"

Example

x2<-LETTERS[5:21]
x2

Output

[1] "E" "F" "G" "H" "I" "J" "K" "L" "M" "N" "O" "P" "Q" "R" "S" "T" "U"
setdiff(x1,x2)
[1] "A" "B" "C" "D" "V" "W" "X" "Y" "Z"
