Abstract.   Various problems in working through lists are discussed in view of changes in Stata 8. for is now undocumented, which provokes a detailed examination of ways of processing lists in parallel with foreach, forvalues, and other devices, including new, concise ways of incrementing and decrementing macros and evaluating other expressions to do with macros in place. New features for manipulating lists held in macros and the new levels command are also reviewed.
