SEQ(1)                                                     SEQ(1)

     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(2)-style format print for printing
                     each (floating point) number.  The default is
                     `%g'.

          -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.
