SEQ(1)SEQ(1)NAMEseq - print sequences of numbers
SYNOPSISseq [ -w ] [ -fformat ] [ first [ incr ] ] last
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
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
-fformat Use the print(2)-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.
EXAMPLESseq 0 .05 .1
Print 0 0.05 0.1 (on separate lines).
seq-w 0 .05 .1
Print 0.00 0.05 0.10.
Option -w always surveys every value in advance. Thus seq-w
1000000000 is a painful way to get an `infinite' sequence.
