If you're using something like this to get unique elements (you may have it more drawn out - and also, this is from the document ozo has pointed you to):
foreach my $elem ( @array )
{
    next if $seen{ $elem }++;
    push @unique, $elem;
}

Open in new window

Then you are half there.  Just look at the %seen assoc. array and look for values greater than 1.
my @dup;
for (%seen) { push(@dup, $_) if $seen{$_} > 1; };
print "@dup\n";

Open in new window
