Need a dupe remover

    Hi,

    now I need a dupe remover which does the following:

    Scan a .txt file and delete duplicate lines of exact same content. Reason is, I created huge keyword lists for Adwords campaigns, it goes in the many hundreds for each list. I need to merge the different lists to one list but this means I'd have tons of duplicate keyphrases listed.

    In the txt lists it's always 1 keyphrase per line. The tool should only delete duplicate lines and not duplicate keywords.

    It's actually a simple tool but I cannot find it anywhere on Google etc. Tons of dupe removers which delete dupe files, emails etc on your HD are listed but nothing I'm looking for.
    SEMrush
    If someone has an idea would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Michael

    You can install Cygwin to run Unix commands on Windows: http://www.cygwin.com/

    Or maybe you can access a Unix shell at your web host?

    Doesn't adwords do this for you? I don't know but I would think they would be able to filter this out if you are using one word per line. If not there are tools out there. Think I bought one for like $29 or so, but can't remember the name of the program.

    I have not the name of the software at hand, but there is a bulk email sofware that include tools for removing duplicate emails (and text lines) from a text.

    Otherwise I would suggest return to the basics, do a researd for MS-DOS remove dupe and you will find useful utilities that work under a Windows box.

    Notepad++ does this. In Notepad++, go to this menu option:
    TextFX > TextFX Tools > +Sort outputs only UNIQUE
    Then go to this menu option: TextFX > TextFX Tools > +Sort lines case insensitive
    The result is a unique list with all duplicate lines removed.

    Here is a very simple online tool (probably too simple): http://jura.wi.mit.edu/bioc/tools/compare.php

    Here is a more robust online tool: http://www.esqsoft.com/tools/dedupe-list.htm

    Another online tool, made especially for cleaning lists of keywords: http://www.servermind.com/keyword-list-cleaner.html
