Description:
Find missing numbers

File (a.txt) is 15000-40000 such order, in the middle a little something figures, such as less 16321,27770,32022, etc., I now want to find out these numbers (b.txt).

My current approach is
1: Generate file c.txt "15000-40000" all the numbers.
2: c.txt - a.txt = b.txt

I would like to know if there was a better way. Thank you


Input Sample:
a.txt
15000
15001
...
(missing 1233, 1357)
...
40000
Output Sample:
1233
1357
