Calculate the intersection (and difference) of two 1D text waves

// Calculates the intersection of two 1D text waves.
// @param wave1
//  First 1D text wave.
// @param wave2
//  Second 1D text wave.
// @param resultWave
//  A text wave where the result will be stored.  This wave will be overwritten if it already contains
//  any data.
// @param rejectWave
//  [OPTIONAL]  A text wave where all values that are in the shorter of wave1 and wave 2 but
//  not in the longer are stored.  Providing this parameter allows you to determine both which
//  values are present in both waves and which are not.  NOTE:  rejectWave will NOT contain
//  values that are present in the longer of the two waves but not in the shorter.
