Remove duplicate email

Code:
cat path/to/dir/file.html | grep -i 'x*.com' > path/to/dir/file.txt

Before
xyz.com 
xyz.com

After 
cat path/to/dir/file.html | grep -i 'x*.com' |  sed '$!s/$/,/' | tr -d '\n'> path/to/dir/file.txt

Result --> Preferred
output:
xyz.com, xyz.com

The preferred is the exact output I want, but I want to remove duplicate. I tried sort | uniq but still wont work. Any help appreciated.
# 2  
how about (for starters):
Code:
awk -v str='x*.com' '$1~str && !a[$1]++' myFile

Sorry still show duplicate
# 4  
myFile:
Code:
xyz.com
xyz.com
1xyz.com
123.com

Code:
$ awk -v str='x*.com' '$1~str && !a[$1]++' myFile
xyz.com
1xyz.com
123.com

I need them to be on the same line with comma seperated as it appears in my preferred output.

Your grep seems not precise, perhaps you mean grep -i '^x.*\.com$' (starts with an x then any amount of characters then .com at the end)
A sed 's/$/,/' does not delete $ because it is an anchor - not a character. But after an N command (that appends the following line to the input buffer) one can remove the embedded \n character.
The following works on all Unix-like OS:
Code:
grep -i '^x.*\.com$' file.html | sed -e ':L' -e '$!N;s/\n/, /;tL'

This removes the emails that are the same. I need to only remove the duplicates
