Some Perl Poetry for You:

use strict; my%a;my@a=split/ /,<DATA>; while(@a){ my($a,$n)=splice@a,0,2; $a{$a}=$n>$a{$a}?$n:$a{$a}; } print join " ", %a; __DATA__ a.txt 4 b.txt 3 z.txt 1 a.txt 5 b.txt 2 b.txt 4 z.txt 2

Now you only need to sort out the sorting...

[choroba]: preparing the trip to Vietnam + buying a new car = enough fun
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's a lot of "fun" for one week...
[Corion]: I guess I should stage some product photos for Sane Dots Supplies ;)
[marto]: I had some ideas about that Corion
[marto]: I'll send a message over the weekend maybe :P
[Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
[Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
