Subject: Re: Prince help. Any way to remove repeats?

Sorry to stick my beak in here, I just seen this post and thought to myself.. What about using a bash script some sed and such or if a windows GUI find&replace to remove the duplicates and then feed the word list file back through whatever.

I used bash, used & awk a while back to utilise a lost of phone prefixes I had amassed, then generate all possible number ranges between six, zeros and six, nines like a rainbow table which then applied these numbers generated to each prefix and after that wrap each prefix, suffix inside some XML which created VCARDs in folders for each prefix both individually and a single large file within each prefix folder so that I could interface them at will within a android smartphone.

So I'm sure something like this might be viable for you to whip up and utilise in many ways.

Sorry if I've a annoyed anyone sticking my nose in.
