Language/Type: Python parameters for fencepost

Write a function named range_of_numbers that accepts two integers as parameters and prints the sequence of numbers between the two arguments, separated by spaces. Print an increasing sequence if the first argument is smaller than the second; otherwise, print a decreasing sequence. If the two numbers are the same, that number should be printed by itself. Here are three sample calls:

range_of_numbers(2, 8)
range_of_numbers(18, 11)
range_of_numbers(42, 42)

The output produced should be the following:

2 3 4 5 6 7 8 
18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 
Function: Write a Python function as described, not a complete program.
