Issue #16428 has been updated by duerst (Martin D=FCrst).


I seem to member that many years ago, I made the same proposal, and Nobu cr=
eated a patch, but unfortunately, I didn't find any traces anymore on this =
tracker or in my mail.

Anyway, I support this proposal. It's definitely an useful functionality, a=
nd it's clearly faster than doing it indirectly via #uniq.

Feature #16428: Add Array#uniq?

----------------------------------------
I propose Array#uniq?.

I often need to check if an array have duplicate elements.

This method returns true if no duplicates are found in self, otherwise retu=
rns false.
If a block is given, it will use the return value of the block for comparis=
on.

This is equivalent to `array.uniq.size =3D=3D array.size`, but faster.

```
% ~/tmp/r/bin/ruby -rbenchmark/ips -e 'a =3D Array.new(100) { rand(1000) };=
 Benchmark.ips { |x| x.report("uniq") { a.uniq.size =3D=3D a.size }; x.repo=
rt("uniq?") { a.uniq? } }'
Warming up --------------------------------------
                uniq    25.765k i/100ms
               uniq?    76.544k i/100ms
Calculating -------------------------------------
                uniq    278.144k (=B1 4.1%) i/s -      1.391M in   5.010858s
               uniq?    981.868k (=B1 5.1%) i/s -      4.975M in   5.081611s
```

I think the name `uniq?` is natural because Array already has `uniq`.
