remove duplicate words from a piece of text. This text would
presumably be pasted into a text box.
I have, for example, a list of town names, but there are hundreds of
"Aberdeen Aberdeen Aberdeen Edinburg Edinburg Inverness etc."
Can you direct me to a script (or write one, please) that will remove
the excess names and leave just one instance of each name, like:
"Aberdeen Edinburg Inverness etc."
Thanks in advance!
[E-mail answers appreciated, but I'll also check the newsgroup.]
