Grep or distinct to filter blank lines
Authored by: fracai on Jul 19, '12 07:10:33PM
uniq requires the duplicate lines to be consecutive. Otherwise they aren't removed. Another option is sort -u, but that will reorder the list. You could get complicated by printing the date column as well, then radix sort, uniquely on the URL column, and then non-uniquely by the date column.
