ODOC: seq

seq — Prints a sequence of Nos to Stdout.

Summary :

seq prints the numbers from Start to End in steps. By default, Start and Step are 1, and by default each number is separated by a new line. All numbers can be reals, not just integers.

Examples :

$ seq 6 — Print Nos from 1 to 6.

$ seq 2 6 — Print Nos from 2 to 6.

$ seq .1 .5 10 — Real numbers with factional step value 0.1.

$ seq 10 100 10000 — Print Nos from 10 to 10K with step value 100.

$ seq -w 10 100 10000 — All Nos are printed equal width.

$ seq -s’ ‘ 1 2 10 — Each number is separated by SPACE.

$ seq -f %1.f 1000000 1000001 — Print Nos with no exponent and no decimal point.

$ seq -f %e 1 5 — Print Nos with exponent and decimal point.

Note:

  1. Fractional increment may NOT end with END value.
  2. More formatting details are available in the info page.
