in thread extract uniques and sort

I didn't realize 'sort' had a -u option. Does that work on Solaris? For some reason I thought I had read that 'sort' and 'uniq' were both required for that task, but now that I look, that's clearly not the case with at least Linux and OpenBSD. And since I was piping anyway, I thought I'd start it with a 'cat' just so the train of thought was easy to follow (first you start with the file, then you sort it, then you look for unique lines). *shrug*

[choroba]: You need square brackets for arrays
[GotToBTru]: you can certainly construct a single expression to access any part of the data structure, without using temp variables. but you might make it easier on yourself and any other poor soul who has to understand your code if you do
[thepkd]: to dereference i mean
LanX .oO( oh tempz, oh moretz)
