I would also call attention to a downloadable paper on that subject, presented at last year's UKSUG, that has been mentioned by several on this list:

"A little bit of Stata programming goes a long way..."

The documentation for -foreach- is in [P], which
many users do not access to. The on-line help is
a little terse, and rather presupposes some knowledge
of (Stata) programming.

However, a basic tutorial on these commands
was published in the Stata Journal:

SJ-2-2 pr0005 . . . . . . Speaking Stata: How to face lists with fortitude
Q2/02 SJ 2(2):202--222 (no commands)
demonstrates the usefulness of for, foreach, forvalues, and
local macros for interactive (non programming) tasks
