I am working on an assignment that is to make a heap from an array. One thing I must do is if an item is already in the array it is not to be added again, but the value only to be incremented. I have had limited success in that I can get it to increment but the word is also added to the list. Also, when I place the first to values in the list they automatically increment, but elements after that do not. Can anyone help please.

in the test bed I have the following:

which when I ask it to print gives me;
The Heap values are: 1 = (Key-> dog, Count -> 2)
