*---------- begin example -----------------
sysuse auto, clear
set seed 12345
forvalues i = 1/10 {
	local quant = round(uniform(),.01)
	local quants "`quants' `quant'"
}
local quants : list sort quants
sqreg pr foreign wei, quantiles(`quants')
*------------ end example -----------------
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see

Hope this helps,
Maarten
