I have an array that was bubble sorted alphabetically.  Now I have the array but have duplicate values.  I want to print out the array but not print the duplicate values.  We are about 4 weeks into the course so I'm hoping the solution is not too complex

when dumping the array of strings, remember the pointer of the previously printed one, make strcmp, or other string
comparation with the current string and print only when it is different.

Heres a pseudo code..assuming the array is sorted.


   i = 0
   j = i + 1

 For loop = 0 to ARRAY_SIZE {
    If (arr(j) != arr(i)){
      Print arr(i)
      i = j        
    }
     j++      
  }

int nArraySize = 250;

int* pArray = new int[nArraySize]; //the array with some values

// your sorting goes here

int nOldValue;
int nNewValue;

for( int i=0 ; i<nArraySize ; i++ )
{
   nNewValue = pArray[i];
   bool bWrite = (i==0); //first value is always written

   if( bWrite==false ) //if not the first, check if new value is the same
   {
      bWrite = (nNewValue!=nOldValue);
   }

   if( bWrite )
   {
      cout << nNewValue << endl;
   }

   nOldValue = nNewValue; //remember last value written
}
