Ah, I did it using the following code:
my @array_q3=(); #create the array to store all words in the file
open INFILE3, "<file";
while( my $line3 = <INFILE3>)
push @array_q3, $line3;
#sort the array so we can identify the duplicates
my @sorted_array_q3 = sort(@array_q3);
#iterate through the sorted array and check for unique elements
foreach my $element ( @sorted_array_q3 )
if ( ! grep( /$element/, @unique_array ) )
push( @unique_array, $element );
#print the unique elements in the file clean.acc\n";
open OUTFILE3, ">unique_codes";
for (my $m=0; $m<=$#unique_array; $m++)
print OUTFILE3 $unique_array[$m]."\n";
My problem here is with grep
, since I seem to miss one element... The element has the code J00148
and apparently there is a conflict with another element, namely AJ001487
What must I add in my grep conditional?
