Dear Listers,

Is it possible to generate a variable with a sequence of numbers that
repeats itself, for example 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3.

I tried -egen fill- but that didn´t work. Another solution would be to make
a new dataset with tree lines with the values 1, 2, 3 and use -expand- and
finally merge that together with the first dataset. However it would be nice
if someone had a simple solution of how to do it within the dataset.

/Tomas
