In this HackerRank 'Uniq' Command #2 problem solution In this challenge, we practice using the uniq command to eliminate consecutive repetitions of a line when a text file is piped through it.

Given a text file, count the number of times each line repeats itself. Only consider consecutive repetitions. Display the space-separated count and line, respectively. There shouldn't be any leading or trailing spaces. Please note that the uniq -c-command by itself will generate the output in a different format than the one expected here.
