Note that this is slightly broken as is. To be entirely correct, you have to say

my (%seen, $seen_undef); my @uniq = grep defined() ? !$seen{$_}++ : !$seen_undef++, @list;
Of course, if you're fiddling with objects which cannot be compared for equity by stringification, it is still broken.

    Well, so is every uniquification based on the keys of a hash! The point still stands that grep is faster than the original idiom presented, by orders of magnitude, if still as memory-hungry.

      I didn't dispute that. :) I just pointed out some of the more subtle points to keep in mind here.
