NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       seq - prints a sequence of numbers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       seq [OPTION]... [FIRST [STEP]] LAST...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  manual  page  documents briefly the GNU seq command.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by  others),  because the original program does not have a manual page.
       Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

       seq prints a sequence of numbers to standard  output.   It  prints  the
       numbers	from  FIRST  to  LAST by STEP.	By default, FIRST and STEP are
       both 1, and each number is printed on its own line.  All numbers can be
       reals, not just integers.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  programs  follow  the  usual  GNU  command	line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes  (`-').   A  summary  of  options  are
       included below.	For a complete description, see the Info files.

       -f FORMAT, --format=FORMAT
	      Print  all numbers using FORMAT; default `%g'.  FORMAT must contain
 exactly one of the standarding float output	formats  `%e',
	      `%f', or `%g'.

       -s STRING, --separator=STRING
	      Separate	numbers with STRING; default is a newline.  The output
	      always terminates with a newline.

       -w, --equal-width
	      Print all numbers with the same width, by padding  with  leading
	      zeroes.  (To have other kinds of padding, use `--format').

       --help Show summary of options.

	      Show version of program.
