Good afternoon LC'ers,

I am loading a tab delimited file into a variable and I need to pull out
all unique names from a certain column (let's say column 10) and count how
many times that name appears in that column.

I know there has to be an easy way of doing it.  Every time I try to start
coding this it get waaaayyy too long :)

Simple approach?
