SubjectRe: test10-pre7
Hi, Peter,
You can easily remove duplicates in object files without sorting. You
can just use a shell written function.
This is an example of such function (bash written).
It removes the duplicates from the argument and prints the result to
stdout.
No sorting used.

# This function removes duplicates from a string
remove_duplicates() {
if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
echo "usage: remove_duplicates string" 1>&2
exit 1
fi
str=""
for tmpvar1 in $1 ; do
flag_found=0
for tmpvar2 in $str ; do
if [ "${tmpvar1}" = "${tmpvar2}" ]; then
flag_found=1
break
fi
done
if [ "${flag_found}" -eq 0 ]; then
str="${str} ${tmpvar1}"
fi
done
echo "${str}"
return 0
}

# This is a usage example.
x="`remove_duplicates \"a b c d e a b c\"`"
echo "$x"
