How do you compare 2 lists and return the difference? (difference function in python does not return what I need)

I am trying to find the difference between 2 lists. Basically, I want to know everything that is in list 1 that is not in list 2. The best way to explain it, is with an example:


List1 = [a, a, b, c, d, e]
List2 = [a, b, c, d]
In this example, I would like a function that would return [a, e]

When I use the difference function in python, it will only return "e" and not that there is an additional "a" that is in list 1. When I simply used XOR between the 2 lists, it also only returned "e." Thanks!

compare two lists in python and return indices of matched values
by enginecrew in Programming Languages

For two lists a and b, how can I get the indices of values that appear in both? For example,


a = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
b = [9, 7, 6, 5, 1, 0]
return_indices_of_a(a, b)

would return [0,4], with (a[0],a[4]) = (1,5).

Say you have 2 identical functions that do not return a value


function a() {
// do some interesting things
}
function b() {
// do the same interesting things
return;
}

Function b is obviously more verbose b
