TStringList and data values(algorithme)

Hi

I have a TStringList called sFirm.

In the stringList I have for example these values:
sFirm[0]:='firm1';
sFirm[1]:='firm2';
sFirm[2]:='firm3';
sFirm[3]:='firm4';
sFirm[4]:='firm2';
sFirm[5]:='firm1';
sFirm[6]:='firm6';
.
.
.

I want to pull out the uniq firm once and put it on another stringList(or the same stringList, but the important is not to have two same firm as firm1 and frim2).

So the list I want to get is:
sTmp[0]:='firm1';
sTmp[1]:='firm2';
sTmp[2]:='firm3';
sTmp[3]:='firm4';
sTmp[4]:='firm6';
.
.
.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers
mha

hi, mha :)
all that you need is already implemented by TStringList:

var
  i: integer;
  sTmp: TStringList;
begin
  sTmp := TStringList.Create;
  sTmp.Sorted := True;
  sTmp.Duplicates := dupIgnore;  // ignore duplicate insertion attempts
  for i := 0 to sFirm.Count -1 do
    sTmp.Add(sFirm[i]);
end;

now you got string list with uniquie firms list

wbr, mo.
