Well, I will stop adding more on this topic as it is going to be an issue now.
my aim was just to help, I don't remember who else has provided another method to generate data from weibull. It will help Nikolao if somebody could tell him how to use -rnd- instead -simulate- in his problem. Also comparison of  the two methods will give better understanding of the topic if somebody else has thrown another method. 
I welcome and appreciate your comments.

Indeed; that is what he said, and I do not know why, as my impression is
that people have already told him, as I said before.

Well, Nikolaos came back saying " I would like to generate weibull data
with
different parameters  and redo the above tests, and finally graph them."
so
I thought I should tell him what I would do in his situation...

This is going round in circles. 

The thread has already thrown up at least two ways to generate Weibull
deviates. I suppose there's some comfort in knowing that you could do it
a third way.

Also note -ssc desc rnd-. This package has only partially been 
rendered obsolete by the addtion of new random number functions in Stata

10.1...
