in reply to remove duplicate value in array

Fletch and Nevtlathiel have it above. Just in case the code sample is too dense, here's a little "looser" version that does the same thing:

my %seen; $seen{$_}++ for @content; my @unique = keys %seen;
So %seen is the hash that gets a key for each unique value in @content, and @unique is an array containing those (unique) keys.

    And of course, the nice thing about this particular solution is you can still tell if there were any duplicate keys ... in such cases, the value of $seen{$key} will be greater than 1.

    It doesn't do quite the same thing. Fletch's solution preserves order. Yours does not.
