Arrays and Tables (SORT and SEARCH)


Guessing this kind of thing has been used by many COBOL programmers.

There is a TABLE of 10-digit numbers.
User enters (ACCEPT) how many such numbers they require.

an ARRAY of 5 x 2-digit RANDOM numbers is loaded.

That ARRAY ( 10-digits ) will be added to the TABLE.

Seems easy enough, but DUPLICATES in an ARRAY need to be prevented.

I suspect (hope) there might be an algorithm that will cope
with this in one go ???

Thanks in advance.
