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

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 $tempfile5\n"; my %hsh; open (OUTF,">$tempfile6") || die "Cannot write to $tempfile6\n"; my @lines = <FILE>; undef @hsh{@lines}; my @lines2 = keys %hsh; foreach my $instance (@lines2) { print OUTF $instance; } close FILE; close OUTF;

In reply to Unique array w/o repeated elements and still keep the original order! by chuleto1

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
