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 steps of INCREMENT.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -f, --format=FORMAT
	      use printf style floating-point FORMAT

       -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

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       If  FIRST  or  INCREMENT  is  omitted,  it  defaults  to 1.  That is, an omitted INCREMENT
       defaults to 1 even when LAST is smaller than FIRST.  The sequence of numbers ends when the
       sum of the current number and INCREMENT would become greater than LAST.	FIRST, INCREMENT,
       and LAST are interpreted as floating point values.  INCREMENT is usually positive if FIRST
       is  smaller  than  LAST,  and INCREMENT is usually negative if FIRST is greater than LAST.
       FORMAT must be suitable for printing one argument of type 'double'; it defaults to %.PRECf
       if  FIRST,  INCREMENT, and LAST are all fixed point decimal numbers with maximum precision
       PREC, and to %g otherwise.
