Hi. I think there is a little mistake in explaining item
"70. Delete duplicate, nonconsecutive lines from a file."
Namely you state that introducing double \n is to suppress greadyness of [ -~]*\n but gready part is [ -~]* and it just can't eat \n that follows it, so one \n is enough.
The purpose of double \n i think is to handle to both cases
1. repeated line is in front of the hold buffer
2. repeated line is somewhere in the middle of the hold buffer
Say you don't double and write(extended regexp):
Looks good, but it would work only in 2 case(middle or end)
and not in 1 case(begin) as \n would stay unmatched.
