seq - print a sequence of numbers
seq [OPTION]... LAST
seq [OPTION]... FIRST LAST
seq [OPTION]... FIRST INCREMENT LAST
Print numbers from FIRST to LAST, in steps of INCREMENT.
use printf style floating-point FORMAT (default: %g)
use STRING to separate numbers (default: \n)
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.
FIRST, INCREMENT, and LAST are interpreted as floating point values.
INCREMENT is usually positive if FIRST is smaller than LAST, and INCRE-
MENT is usually negative if FIRST is greater than LAST. When given,
the FORMAT argument must contain exactly one of the printf-style,
floating point output formats %e, %f, %g
