Very great thanks to you and David about providing a one-liner
solution! I've modified the awk version in order it works as an alias.
I send it in case some one asks the same question:

Copy-paste the next line in ~/.bash_aliases:
alias uniqall='awk '"'"'! a[$0]++'"'"''

Then you can filter like that:
cat file | ... | uniqall | ...

(tested with bash, version 4.2.20(1)-release under Debian Wheezy)

Thanks and good bye,
