In a array that the values are never repeated. Is there a function/library or something similar that you give the value to remove. And the function the empty space in the array??

function remove(uint _valueToFindAndRemove, uint[] _array)  returns(uint[]) {}

    If you don't care about the order of the elements, then you can implement it pretty efficiently, while changing very little in the array. – goodvibration Feb 12 at 11:36
  • Regarding the proposed function, no @goodvibration? – UnexpectedCharacter Feb 12 at 11:48

    Well... regarding your question in general. Also, I assume that you want this to be applied on a state-variable, so if I understand correctly, then there's no advantage in passing an array and returning an array (i.e., you may as well work directly on the state-variable array). – goodvibration Feb 12 at 12:06
function remove(uint _valueToFindAndRemove, uint[] _array)  returns(uint[]) {

    uint[] storage auxArray;

    for (uint i = 0; i < _array.length; i++){
        if(_array[i] != _valueToFindAndRemove)

    return auxArray;

I don´t know if this efficiente to a private chain implementation. But can be a way
