Strip duplicate and blank entries from an array

Recommended Posts

Using functions as _FileListToArray or StringSplit, you may get an array with several duplicate or blank entries. This function removes all duplicate and blank entries, and return a new array (without duplicate and blank entries). It also updates the element of index 0 (number of entries).

* It needs to #include <Array.au3>

What about the build in function _ArrayUnique()? It is slow but working...
