C# – Efficient list of unique strings C#


What is the most efficient way to store a list of strings ignoring any duplicates?
I was thinking a dictionary may be best inserting strings by writing dict[str] = false; and enumerating through the keys as a list. Is that a good solution?

Best Solution

If you are using .NET 3.5, the HashSet should work for you.

The HashSet<(Of <(T>)>) class provides high performance set operations. A set is a collection that contains no duplicate elements, and whose elements are in no particular order.
