NAME
       uniq - report or omit repeated lines

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

DESCRIPTION
       Filter adjacent matching lines from INPUT (or standard input), writing to OUTPUT (or stan-
       dard 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}  Delimit-
	      ing 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

       --version
	      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'.
