As Geoff demonstrated, the efficient way to do this is with "repeat for 
each line ..." and build up a new output variable.

This is doubly true if you also need to do something with the deleted 
"F" lines ....

repeat for each line L in tMyData
    if char 1 of L = "F" then
       process L
       put L & CR after tOutputFLines
    else
      process L differently
      put L & CR after tOutputNonFLines
   end if
end repeat
