If one were worried about efficiency, then one should not use a shell script. This was quick to write. Thanks for the input.

`fib(){ k=0; l=1; for i in `seq 1 \$1`; do t=\$l; l=\$((\$l + \$k)); k=\$t; done; echo \$k;}` also quick to write, but much faster

fpunktk: 93th and some others afterwards are negative, why is that?

I had never really used bash case statements before and was trying them out. If I really wanted to use large numbers, I would have done: `python -c 'def fib(n):` if n not in fibs:fibs[n]=fib(n-1)+fib(n-2) return fibs[n] import sys;fibs={0:0,1:1};print fib(int(sys.argv[1]))' 7 13
