Fine explanation, but...

Two args to test_seq, but...

it wants only one.

I think you would want:

  test $# = 1 && set -- 1 "$@"
  "$PERL_PATH" -le "print for $1..$2"

It might also be worth quoting the parameters like this:

  "$PERL_PATH" -le "print for '$1'..'$2'"

so that "test_seq a f" works, too.
