6.1.37 uniq

Usage:

   uniq [-count] [<colid-list>]

Eliminates adjacent rows which have the same values. If used with no arguments, then any row which has identical values to its predecessor is removed.

If the <colid-list> parameter is given then only the values in the specified columns must be equal in order for the row to be removed.

If the -count flag is given, then an additional column with the name DupCount will be prepended to the table giving a count of the number of duplicated input rows represented by each output row. A unique row has a DupCount value of 1.

Syntax for the <colid-list> argument is described in Section 6.3.
