What Others Think

Slightly shorter version using "seq" (from coreutils). Some additional benefits of seq are that you can pad with leading 0's, specify increments (if you don't want to increment by 1), etc. rangeBegin=10; rangeEnd=20; for numbers in $(seq $rangeBegin $rangeEnd); do echo $numbers;done
