( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello Monks,

I have a basic question to remove a duplicate word from a line.

The word is inside a string, ok, lets consider it as $string, I have a paragraph inside that string and there is a line where duplicates is coming and I want to remove it...

Example data
--------------------------- Allscripts LLC - Long Island City, NY May 31, 2013 Job Summary Company Allscripts LLC Allscripts LLC Location Long Island City, NY Job Type Regular Job Classification Full Time Experience not provided Education not provided Company Ref # 014625014625 AJE Ref # 561949312 -----------------------------

Here Just next to 'Company' there is 'Allscripts LLC Allscripts LLC', I just need it once and it should be like 'Allscripts LLC' instead of 'Allscripts LLC Allscripts LLC'. So the output want is like,

------------------------------------ Allscripts LLC - Long Island City, NY May 31, 2013 Job Summary Company Allscripts LLC # (Changes in this line) Location Long Island City, NY Job Type Regular Job Classification Full Time Experience not provided Education not provided Company Ref # 014625014625 AJE Ref # 561949312 ------------------------------------

The name should be any names & not only just "Allscripts LLC". It can be some other names like "TechnoCats" "GLOBEMASTERS" etc.. etc.. I need a universal solution.

I am not getting how to do this properly, Can any Monks pls suggest me a way to do this effectively.

Regards,

Galonet
