1) Here it is is with uniq,map and select
pullmonkey:~\$ irb
irb(main):001:0> a  1,2,1,3,2,1,3,2]
[1, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1, 3, 2]
irb(main):002:0> a.uniq.map{|x| a.select{|y| y x}}
[[1, 1, 1], [2, 2, 2], [3, 3]]

2) And for a hash of element frequency using uniq,map and select
irb(main):004:0> a.uniq.map{|x| {x a.select{|y| y x}.size}}
[{1}, {2}, {3}]
