seq(1)                           User Commands                          seq(1)


       seq - print a sequence of numbers


       seq [OPTION]... LAST
       seq [OPTION]... FIRST LAST


       Print numbers from FIRST to LAST, in steps of INCREMENT.

       Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

       -f, --format=FORMAT
              use printf style floating-point FORMAT

       -s, --separator=STRING
              use STRING to separate numbers (default: \n)

       -w, --equal-width
              equalize width by padding with leading zeroes

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       If FIRST or INCREMENT is omitted, it defaults to 1.  That is, an  omit-
       ted  INCREMENT defaults to 1 even when LAST is smaller than FIRST.  The
       sequence of numbers ends when the sum of the current number and  INCRE-
       MENT  would  become  greater than LAST.  FIRST, INCREMENT, and LAST are
       interpreted as floating point values.  INCREMENT is usually positive if
       FIRST  is smaller than LAST, and INCREMENT is usually negative if FIRST
       is greater than LAST.  INCREMENT must not be 0; none of  FIRST,  INCRE-
       MENT  and  LAST  may  be NaN.  FORMAT must be suitable for printing one
       argument of type 'double'; it defaults to %.PRECf if FIRST,  INCREMENT,
       and  LAST  are  all  fixed point decimal numbers with maximum precision
       PREC, and to %g otherwise.
