Given a string S, remove duplicates in this string using STL in C++ Examples:
Input: Geeks for geeks
Output: Gefgkors

Input: aaaaabbbbbb
Output: ab
Approach: The consecutive duplicates of the string can be removed using the unique() function provided in STL. Below is the implementation of the above approach.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
    string str = "aaaaabbbbbb";
    sort(str.begin(), str.end());
  
    // Using unique() method
    auto res = unique(str.begin(), str.end());
  
    cout << string(str.begin(), res)
         << endl;
}

                    
Output:
ab
