How to translate MS-DOS for loop to Powershell

I apologize for the noob question: How would I translate something like this to powershell?

Code: Select all

for /l %X in (1,1,6) do ...
I see from get-help foreach -examples that I can create an array and then process each item, but how to do it with just signifying "start, step,end" like MS-DOS?

Code: Select all

PS C:\> 1,2,3,4,5,6 | foreach-object -process {$_*2}
2
4
6
8
10
12
----------------------------

use the range operator

Code: Select all

PS C:\> 1,2,3,(5..9) | foreach-object -process {$_*2}
