st: Inverse Percentile

I ran a <summ days, de> on the variable days & of course obtained the 25th & 50th percentiles (among others). My 25th percentile was close to zero days & my median 4 days. Is there a way to obtain the percentiles corresponding to say 1, 2, & 3 days? I know I can compute percentiles using the pctile command so I could pick a fine setting & then search for the closest to the values I am interested in but that seems rather kludgy -- is there another way?

Thanks,

Eric
