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 inter-
preted 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 鈥榙ouble鈥 it defaults to %.PRECf if FIRST,
INCREMENT, and LAST are all fixed point decimal numbers with maximum precision PREC, and
to %g otherwise.
