    Noticed the ++ in !$seen{$_}++?

    perl -MData::Dumper -e '@a=(1, 2, 1, 2, 3); my @result = grep { !$seen +{$_}++ } @a; print Dumper(\%seen);' $VAR1 = { '1' => 2, '3' => 1, '2' => 2 };

    The ++ is evaluated for every item in @a, grep only checks its return value and picks (or not picks) the element based on that value.

    $seen{4} = 3 means that 4 has been seen 3 times.

    Unless I state otherwise, all my code runs with strict and warnings
