SYNOPSIS

uniq [\,OPTION\/]... [\,INPUT \/[\,OUTPUT\/]]

DESCRIPTION

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, one for each group
-D print all duplicate lines
--all-repeated[=\,METHOD\/]
  like -D, but allow separating groups with an empty line; METHOD={none(default),prepend,separate}
-f, --skip-fields=\,N\/
  avoid comparing the first N fields
--group[=\,METHOD\/]
  show all items, separating groups with an empty line; METHOD={separate(default),prepend,append,both}
-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
  line delimiter is NUL, 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’.
