With -cf- what you see in the help is all there is. There is
absolutely no scope to use it for what you want. I am unclear
precisely what you do want, but combining the two datasets and doing
the calculations yourself seems indicated.

The responses in the two datasets, however, may vary by up to ten percent and be considered the same for my purposes. Is there a way to implement the cf command and allow for responses within a certain parameter to be considered equal? Alternatively, is there another solution to this problem?
