Option parsing: stopearly is now a ^ prefix (not +), and an option string with no flags auto-enables stopearly (so seq doesn't have to specify it to avoid having negative number arguments eaten by the option parsing logic).

config SEQ
	bool "seq"
	default y
	  usage: seq [first] [increment] last

	  Count from first to last, by increment.  Omitted arguments default
	  to 1.  Two arguments are used as first and last.  Arguments can be
	  negative or floating point.

#include "toys.h"

void seq_main(void)
	double first, increment, last, dd;

	// Parse command line arguments, with appropriate defaults.
	// Note that any non-numeric arguments are treated as zero.
	first = increment = 1;
	switch (toys.optc) {
		case 3:
			increment = atof(toys.optargs[1]);
		case 2:
			first = atof(*toys.optargs);
			last = atof(toys.optargs[toys.optc-1]);

	// Yes, we're looping on a double.  Yes rounding errors can accumulate if
	// you use a non-integer increment.  Deal with it.
	for (dd=first; (increment>0 && dd<=last) || (increment <0 && dd>=last);
		printf("%g\n", dd);
