Not a native speaker, I'm looking for something to describe the below:
I have two lists: A and B When I combine A and B (and the direction is important here) then the following would be phrased as:
A => B:
A merges **INTO** B
The opposite of that operation would then be:
A <= B
B merges **INTO** A
But suppose I need to describe the second operation but starting my sentence with A.
A <= B
A 'THE PHRASE IM LOOKING FOR' B
B merges into A, and B is lost in the process. What phrase would correctly describe such an operation?
The lists are:
- Used in a programming context.
- Contains both unique and duplicates.
- Contains a list of "Rules".
- The lists are not ordered.
- After the merge, all unique values in B will be in A, and all non-unique values will be discarded (for the operation A <= B).
