the Union of real numbers


Hi,

I am trying to apply the Union function to a list of real numbers, in which
many duplicates occur.  However, small differences between the numbers
cause some of the duplicates to be retained instead of discarded.

Suppose the list of real numbers is called k, my present work-around is as
follows:

Union [ Rationalize [ k, 10^-6 ] ].

This does discard the duplicates.  Is there a better method?
