SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

Print numbers from FIRST to LAST, in steps of INCREMENT.
-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
--version
  output version information and exit
If FIRST or INCREMENT is omitted, it defaults to 1. That is, an omitted INCREMENT defaults to 1 even when LAST is smaller than FIRST. 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. 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.
