Find unique elements in a matrix

Given a matrix mat[][] having n rows and m columns. We need to find unique elements in matrix i.e, those elements which are not repeated in the matrix or those elements whose frequency is 1.

Examples:

Input :  20  15  30  2
         2   3   5   30
         6   7   6   8
Output : 3  20  5  7  8  15 

Input :  1  2  3  
         5  6  2
         1  3  5
         6  2  2
Output : No unique element in the matrix

Follow these steps to find unique element:
1. Create an empty hash table or dictionary.
2. Traverse through all the elements of the matrix
3. If element is present in the dictionary, then increment its count
4. Otherwise insert element with value = 1.

C++

// C++ program to find unique
// element in matrix
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
#define R 4
#define C 4
  
// function that calculate unique element
int unique(int mat[R][C], int n, int m)
{
    int maximum = 0, flag = 0;
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++) 
        for(int j = 0; j < m; j++)
            // Find maximum element in
            // a matrix
            if(maximum < mat[i][j])
                    maximum = mat[i][j];
  
    // Take 1-D array of (maximum + 1)
    // size
    int b[maximum + 1] = {0};
    for(int i = 0 ; i < n; i++)
        for(int j = 0; j < m; j++)
            b[mat[i][j]]++;
  
    //print unique element
    for(int i = 1; i <= maximum; i++)
        if(b[i] == 1)
            cout << i << " ";
            flag = 1;
              
    if(!flag){
        cout << "No unique element in the matrix";
    }
}
