There should be a "unique" option on sort . . .

Or, (untested)


repeat for each line tLine in tData --unsorted
  if tLine is not among the lines of tFinal then put tLine & return after tFinal
end repeat
sort tFinal --if desired


But using Peter's "split" post is the most elegant

   *put* line 1 of tSortedData is false into lastLine

   *repeat* for each line L in tSortedData

      *if* L is lastLine *then* *next* *repeat*

      *put* L & cr after tUniqueData

      *put* L into lastLine

   *end* *repeat*

Either that or some form of Peter's de-dupe and then sort.
