NAME
       seq - print a sequence of numbers

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

DESCRIPTION
       Print numbers from FIRST to LAST, in(1,8) steps of INCREMENT.

       -f, --format=FORMAT
              use printf(1,3,1 builtins) style floating-point FORMAT (default: %g)

       -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(3,n,1 builtins)

       --version
              output version(1,3,5) information and exit(3,n,1 builtins)

       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(3,n) FIRST is smaller than LAST, and INCRE-
       MENT  is  usually  negative if(3,n) 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
