EXAMPLE

For n=2, the previous term a(1) is 0 by definition and the digit 0 has never been seen before so a(2) is 0.
For n=3, a(2) is 0, the digit 0 has been seen once before so a(3) is 1.
For n=22, a(21) is 10, digit 1 has been seen once before a(21) and digit 0 has been seen eleven times, so a(22) = 12.
For n=68, a(67) is 22, digit 2 has been seen ten times before, we only consider unique digits of a(n1), so a(68) = 10.
