Some little help is needed here ...

I have two text files, each has just a single column of data

FileA has 2798 entries, while FileB has 4242 entries; There are
entries in FileA that are also in FileB...

I'd like to filter against the two files, so I only get those entries
in FileB that don't occur only in FileA ....

There are a couple of commands to do exactly what you want.

comm(1) -- select or reject lines common to two files

diff(1) -- find differences between two files

sort(1) -- sort lines of text files
