Hey this is cool, how would we go about removing duplicates if we have columns?

e.g.

id|url
id|url
id|url

@Mycamerafocus: I don't think you can. Focus can only be on one pane at a time.

So, somebody asked about finding the duplicates. Don't forget you can use a Unix command, 'uniq -d' to print those out. (Sort the file, first.)
