Hello Experts,
I am writing a method that needs to deduplicate the data in code; just plain old c# - no sql here...
I'm reading in a datatable and a list of fields to dedup on and want to return deduped list;
I was wondring if you could please help me fill in the "todo" section?

(I suspect the challenge for meis making this reasonably quick, so it might be worth keeping in mind if there are several ways of doing it.. :) )

Thank you!!

public static DataTable Deduplicate(DataTable ds,string dedup_on_fields_str)
            string[] dedup_on_fields_arr = dedup_on_fields_str.Split(',');
            //to do..
            return ds;
