Print sorted distinct elements of array

Given an array that might contain duplicates, print all distinct elements in sorted order.

Examples:

Input  : 1, 3, 2, 2, 1
Output : 1 2 3

Input  : 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3
Output : 1 2 3

Simple Solution is to sort the array first, then traverse the array and print only first occurrences of elements.

Another Approach is to use set in C++ STL.
