seq(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

Rinci-/Perinci::CmdLine-based "seq"-like CLI utility.

This utility is similar to Unix seq command, with a few differences: some differences in option names, JSON output, allow infinite stream (when to is not specified).

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • equal_width => bool

    Equalize width by padding with leading zeros.

  • from* => float

  • header => str

    Add a header row.

  • increment => float (default: 1)

  • limit => int

    Only generate a certain amount of numbers.

  • number_format => str

    sprintf() format for each number.

  • to => float

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)
