This tutorial explains how to automatically remove duplicate lines from a text file.
zebNet Duplicate Line Remover software is used to automatically delete all the exact duplicate lines from your text file. By the word exact duplicate lines means even if a single character is changed or in Upper/lower case, then it won’t remove that line from your text file. Thus, this software is quite beneficial to quickly remove duplicate lines available in your text file meaninglessly.
Manually it could take a lot of time to remove duplicate lines, therefore this software is worthy to use. However, it is limited to work with only plain text files and only one text file at a time. So if this limitation doesn’t bother you, then you can use this software which is completely free.
In above screenshot, you can see comparison of a text file before and after the processing. You can say that it scans file from top to bottom and removes all the bottom lines that are fully identical to their above lines.

Installer is very lightweight but ad-supported. So in between the download and installation process of this duplicate file remover software, many third-party tools will be offered to you.
