in thread What does 'next if $hash{$elem}++;' mean?

It isn't necessary to do all of the intermediate processing. You can read a line and check it all at the same time.

The line is used as a hash key. The value is tested before being incremented and the line is added to the array.

my %seen; while (<PROCESSED_FILE>){ push @unique, $_ unless $seen{$_}++; }

This is OK if the hash doesn't grow to big. Using MD5 hashes of lines is an uesful technique.

[1nickt]: Petroza to answer your question, no, no special permission is needed to post a question.
[LanX]: did you spam before? :)
LanX has to go/
[ambrus]: I hope we didn't mess up the spam filter rules again.
[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
[1nickt]: Petroza can you go back in your browser to the preview screen, redact the links, and try to submit again?
[LanX]: copy and paste the text into your Petroza's scratchpad please
