Oh. Duh. You are right. I will follow Nick's advice and keep my forval loops integers whenever possible.

This behavior is intentional, though: The step size for this particular syntax is the difference between the first and the second argument, i.e. 31.6-31.3=0.3, so it cannot hit the 38 exactly and stops short of it. To get
an exact hit, increase the upper bound to 38.2...


*************
forval x = 31.3 31.6 : 38.2 {
                di `x'
          }
