I am trying to populate an array from a MySQL database.  I think I
have the code correct to populate the array, but I need to somehow sort the
array eliminating duplicate values.  I think I can loop through the array
doing a comparison and building a new array by discarding the value if it is
a duplicate, but I was not sure if there was a more efficient way of doing
this.  I am already looping through the database query results, and I am
just thinking about efficiency here.
        Here is a code sample with a little more description of what I am

  do {
        $entry = $list['id_sys'];
            $id = split('-', $list['id_sys'], 1);
        $sbcuid = $id[0];
        $users[] = '$sbcuid';  
  } while ($list = mysql_fetch_assoc($result));

        This query pulls a value from the database that is a
username-hostname value.  What I am working on is building a page that has a
unique list of usernames that link to a second page of user account
information.  There may be twenty user account on different hosts for the
same username.  I only want to have the username link created once on this
page.  I hope that makes since to everyone.  Thanks in advance for any help.
