Problem

Given two log files, containing one log entry per line, generate lists IP addresses unique to each file. (IP's in file1.log but not in file2.log and IP's in file2.log but not in file1.log)

Sample Data

Use the following to verify results:

test_log1.txt

resulting output should be similar to

Only in test_log1.txt
set([[])

Only in test_log2.txt
set(['67.195.37.158', '74.6.22.177', '65.55.105.194', '91.121.106.59', '72.30.161.228', '208.80.194.38'])

If you would like a large dataset to work with, here are two files containing 25 thousand log entries each.
