Maybe he was hoping for a uniq [-b|--bytes] ?

Suggestion to Shlomo (if you use bash):

  alias uniq='LC_ALL=C \uniq'

or, if you want it in your shell scripts too:

  uniq() { LC_ALL=C; "${type -P uniq}" "$@" ; }; export -f uniq

I understand this is due to locale.
But, it would be nice if a simple flag would do a locale-free comparison
(i.e. equal = all bytes are equal).

If you want to compare byte by byte:

LC_ALL=C uniq ....
