Mention of "database" in the Subject: pushed this into my "deferred

built my email white list processor upon Berkeley DB2.

If they're duplicate lines, Wyble's "uniq" solution will work.  But I
suspect that you knew this.  So you're not telling enough about the
format.  Can you post a sample?

  Some folks cherish the freedom to read the computer programs that they
  use.  Such a person is rightfully offended when asked to give up this
  freedom, as necessary to render a document in some proprietary format.
