.

Ignore the extra parentheses (0) in the first command. Typo.

The fact that forvalues

forvalues i = (0)(.05).15 {
display `i'
}

gives


. forvalues i = 0(.05).15 {
 2. display `i'
 3. }
0
.05
.1

is related to accuracy of a macro or float right (.15 is missing)?

I could alternatively type:

forvalues i = 0(5)15 {
display `i'/10
}

or

forvalues i = 0(.05).16 {
display `i'
}
