# Print sorted distinct elements of array

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2021

Given an array that might contain duplicates, print all distinct elements in sorted order.

Examples:

```Input  : 1, 3, 2, 2, 1
Output : 1 2 3

Input  : 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3
Output : 1 2 3```

Simple Solution is to sort the array first, then traverse the array and print only first occurrences of elements.

Another Approach is to use set in C++ STL.

## C++

 `// CPP program to print sorted distinct``// elements.``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `void` `printRepeating(``int` `arr[], ``int` `size)``{``    ``// Create a set using array elements``    ``set<``int``> s(arr, arr + size);` `    ``// Print contents of the set.``    ``for` `(``auto` `x : s)``        ``cout << x << ``" "``;``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `arr[] = { 1, 3, 2, 2, 1 };``    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr);``    ``printRepeating(arr, n);``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to print sorted distinct``// elements.``import` `java.io.*;``import` `java.util.*;` `public` `class` `GFG {``     ` `    ``static` `void` `printRepeating(Integer []arr, ``int` `size)``    ``{``        ``// Create a set using array elements``        ``SortedSet s = ``new` `TreeSet<>();``        ``Collections.addAll(s, arr);``        ` `        ``// Print contents of the set.``        ``System.out.print(s);``    ``}``     ` `    ``// Driver code``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``Integer []arr = {``1``, ``3``, ``2``, ``2``, ``1``};``        ``int` `n = arr.length;``        ``printRepeating(arr, n);``    ``}``}`` ` `// This code is contributed by``// Manish Shaw (manishshaw1)`

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to print``# sorted distinct elements.` `def` `printRepeating(arr,size):` `    ``# Create a set using array elements``    ``s ``=` `set``()``    ``for` `i ``in` `range``(size):``        ``if` `arr[i] ``not` `in` `s:``            ``s.add(arr[i])` `    ``# Print contents of the set.``    ``for` `i ``in` `s:``        ``print``(i,end``=``" "``)` `# Driver code``if` `__name__``=``=``'__main__'``:``    ``arr ``=` `[``1``,``3``,``2``,``2``,``1``]``    ``size ``=` `len``(arr)``    ``printRepeating(arr,size)` `# This code is contributed by``# Shrikant13`

## C#

 `// C# program to print sorted distinct``// elements.``using` `System;``using` `System.Collections.Generic;``using` `System.Linq;` `class` `GFG {``    ` `    ``static` `void` `printRepeating(``int` `[]arr, ``int` `size)``    ``{``        ``// Create a set using array elements``        ``SortedSet<``int``> s = ``new` `SortedSet<``int``>(arr);``    ` `        ``// Print contents of the set.``        ``foreach` `(``var` `n ``in` `s)``        ``{``            ``Console.Write(n + ``" "``);``        ``}``    ``}``    ` `    ``// Driver code``    ``public` `static` `void` `Main()``    ``{``        ``int` `[]arr = {1, 3, 2, 2, 1};``        ``int` `n = arr.Length;``        ``printRepeating(arr, n);``    ``}``}` `// This code is contributed by``// Manish Shaw (manishshaw1)`
