How can I extract just the unique elements of an array? is very helpful if that's what I want to do. But I need a list of all the elements that are *not* unique. And I need each element in this output list to be, itself, unique, even if it occurs more than twice in the input list. And to make matters worse, I need to do this in a for loop where I do other operations on the input list, so that shifting off one element after another is not an option. What I have at present is
my @in = qw/ test foo test bar baz foo test /; my %multiples; my %out; for (@in) { if ($multiples{$_} == 1) { $out{$_} = 1; } $multiples{$_} = 1; } print "$_\n" for keys %out;
This does what I want, but seems clunky. Is there a cute idiom for this operation?

  • 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).
