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

- -f, --format=FORMAT
- use printf style floating-point FORMAT (default: %g)
- -s, --separator=STRING
- use STRING to separate numbers (default: \n)
- -w, --equal-width

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. 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. When given, the FORMAT argument must contain exactly one of the printf-style, floating point output formats %e, %f, %g
