    Grep Last Pattern Output

    Hi

    Is there any way with grep to show me only the last pattern that matches and not all ? For example for a file with

    linux 56
    slackware 32
    debian 34
    linux 2
    redhat 9

    and $> grep linux filename

    show me only --> linux 2
    and not

    linux 56
    linux 2

    Thanks
