Dear list,

I am used to using the "for" command to write a command that calls
members from more than one list in order. For example:

>for any a b c \ num 1/3 \ any g h i: gen XYZ = 0 

would generate three variables named a1g, b2h, and c3i, each filled
with zeros. 

I am trying to graduate from <for> to <forvalue> and <foreach>, and
wondered how I can do as above with these newer commands.

Thanks in advance.
