( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Straight from Perl Cookbook (well almost :-)
my @all_names = qw/john andy bill andy john julia bill/; my %seen = (); my @names = grep { ! $seen{$_} ++ } @all_names; print join(' ', @names);
This prints john andy bill julia, I'm sure you'll get other variations.

Update 1: Fixed typos in code D'oh.

Update 2: As TomDLux rightly pointed out, you may wish to sort the names alphabetically, if so just change line 3 to this:

my @names = sort grep { ! $seen{$_} ++ } @all_names;
Returning: andy bill john julia (which is what I meant to do originally but ... err... didn't)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
