Hi,

try

last | grep -v wtmp | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort > /tmp/u.$$
c=`wc -l < /tmp/u.$$`
c=`expr $c - 1`
tail -$c /tmp/u.$$

Hi,

Thank you Tintin :)

Correction:

last | egrep -v "reboot|wtmp" | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n | tail - 10

What about the empty line?

last | egrep -v "reboot|wtmp" | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n | head  -10
