The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Let's try: ! is the negation operator, _ is an array name (it could have been "array", "pippo" or anything else, but undoubtedly a simple underscore is minimal and effective).
The expression _[$1]++ increments the value of the element of the array with index $1 by one. Since the ++ comes after, the expression is evaluated before the increment so that at the first occurrence of $1 the value is still 0 (false). For any other occurrence of $1 the value is >0 (true).
The negation invert the boolean logic. Genius!
Finally, no action is associated to the expression, so that the default one (print $0) is applied.
i just want to remove abc 1 and agsi 3 but not iaij... its removing all three..
This complicates things a bit. What is the logic for not removing duplicates of "iaij"? Is it simply an exclusion of some specific strings? Or does it depend on the absence of any other (numeric) field on the same line?
