intersect

var a = ['foo', 'bar', 'baz'];
var b = ['nope', 'bar', 'baz'];
 
console.log(intersect(a, b));
// => ['bar', 'baz'] 

With npm do

$ component install juliangruber/intersect

Find the intersection of arrays a and b. The individual arrays are expected to be sets, i.e. there's no duplicate elements in them.

You can also pass an array of arrays as a single argument, to get the intersection of n arrays.

This module contains an alternative intersection algorithm by @minuteman3, better suited for intersecting big arrays.

The implementations might compare like this, depending on your host environment:
