       uniq - report or omit repeated lines


       uniq [OPTION]... [INPUT [OUTPUT]]


       Filter  adjacent  matching  lines  from  INPUT  (or standard input), writing to OUTPUT (or
       standard output).

       With no options, matching lines are merged to the first occurrence.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -c, --count
              prefix lines by the number of occurrences

       -d, --repeated
              only print duplicate lines

       -D, --all-repeated[=delimit-method]
              print   all   duplicate    lines    delimit-method={none(default),prepend,separate}
              Delimiting is done with blank lines

       -f, --skip-fields=N
              avoid comparing the first N fields

       -i, --ignore-case
              ignore differences in case when comparing

       -s, --skip-chars=N
              avoid comparing the first N characters

       -u, --unique
              only print unique lines

       -z, --zero-terminated
              end lines with 0 byte, not newline

       -w, --check-chars=N
              compare no more than N characters in lines

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       A  field  is  a  run  of  blanks  (usually spaces and/or TABs), then non-blank characters.
       Fields are skipped before chars.

       Note: 'uniq' does not detect repeated lines unless they are adjacent.   You  may  want  to
       sort  the input first, or use `sort -u' without `uniq'.  Also, comparisons honor the rules
       specified by `LC_COLLATE'.
