This is not a good idea, as is discussed in the statalist FAQ point 5:

*--------------- begin example --------------------

forvalues n1 = 1/10 {

forvalues n2 = 1/10 {

forvalues p = .1(.1).9 {

di invFtail(`n1',`n2',`p')

}

}

}

*---------------- end example ---------------------

(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see

Hope this helps,

Maarten
