Please monks you are my only hope:
This piece of code opens a file an dumps contents into array. I want to get rid of possible repeated lines of text. When I run the code, it substitutes repeated elements for only one instance. Yes this is what I want but I do not want the order of the elements to change. Current implementation does not keep correct order when I dump the unique lines into a new file. Please help!
open (FILE,"$tempfile5") || die "Cannot read from $tempfile5\n";
open (OUTF,">$tempfile6") || die "Cannot write to $tempfile6\n";
my @lines = <FILE>;
my @lines2 = keys %hsh;
foreach my $instance (@lines2)
print OUTF $instance;
