seq - prints a sequence of numbers
seq [OPTION]... [FIRST [STEP]] LAST...
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.
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.
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.
This program is documented fully by Shell utilities: (sh-utils), GNU
shell utilities, available via the Info system.
