NAME

       seq - print sequences of numbers

SYNOPSIS

       seq [ -w ] [ -fformat ] [ first [ incr ] ] last

DESCRIPTION

       Seq  prints a sequence of numbers, one per line, from first (default 1) to as near last as
       possible, in increments of incr (default 1).  The loop is:

         for(val = min; val <= max; val += incr) print val;

       The numbers are interpreted as floating point.

       Normally integer values are printed as decimal integers.  The options are

       -fformat   Use the print(3)-style format print for printing each (floating point)  number.
                  The default is

       -w         Equalize  the widths of all numbers by padding with leading zeros as necessary.
                  Not effective with option -f, nor with numbers in exponential notation.

EXAMPLES

       seq 0 .05 .1
              Print 0 0.05 0.1 (on separate lines).

       seq -w 0 .05 .1
              Print 0.00 0.05 0.10.

BUGS

       Option -w always surveys every value in advance.  Thus seq -w 1000000000 is a painful  way
       to get an `infinite' sequence.
