#### Remove the repeated lines in my array...

```Dear Folk,
Hi,
I have an array (24*300,000) and it is lon-lat with some specification (24 characteristics). Some of these lines are repeated numbers. I mean same lon-lat and same specifications. I just want to know how could i remove the repeated lines in my array,
Thanks for any kind of helps in advance,
Cheers,
Dave
```

the following functions are untested

function ord, array
;+
; Calculates the ordinal of each value of an array in terms of the
; sorted values.
; inspired by jbiu's ord & uniqify, written by Markus Schmassmann
; IDL> result=ord(array)
;-
compile_opt defint32, strictarr
return, reform( value_locate(array[uniq(array,sort(array))],array), \$
size(array,/dimensions),/overwrite )
end

function uniq_multi, array
ords=ulonarr(24,300000)
for i=0,23 do ords[i,*]=ord(array[i,0])
maxO=max(ords,dim=2)
idx=ulon64arr(300000)
for i=0,23 do idx=idx*maxO[i]+ords[*,i]
return, array[*,uniq(idx,sort(idx))]
end

if you run into an overflow for idx, then you could print each of the
lines into an element of an array of strings and then use

array[*,uniq(idx,sort(stringarray))]

I hope one of these approaches works or can be made to work,
Good luck,
Markus

here the corrected code should anyone else care.
Seasonal greetings to everyone,                    Markus

function uniq_multi, array
;+
;  same as uniq, but considers multiple columns of an array
;-

compile_opt defint32, strictarr

sz=size(array,/dim)
ncol  =sz[0]
nlines=sz[1]

ords=ulonarr(ncol,nlines)
for i=0,ncol-1 do ords[i,*]=ord(array[i,*])
maxO=max(ords,dim=2)
idx=ulon64arr(1,nlines)
for i=0,ncol-1 do idx=idx*maxO[i]+ords[i,*]

return, array[*,uniq(idx,sort(idx))]

end
```
