def _(a=((0.1)..(5.00))):

I would like 'a' to be iterated by the step 0.1, and not 1.

How can I achieve this?

Here's one approach, which works by giving Sage enough values that it can guess what step you want:

sage: (0.1, 0.2, .., 0.5)
<generator object ellipsis_iter at 0x11bce0fa0>
sage: list(0.1, 0.2, .., 0.5)
[0.100000000000000, 0.200000000000000, 0.300000000000000, 0.400000000000000, 0.500000000000000]

You can also specify the details using the command slider. The syntax is:


For example, you might have the following:

def _(a=slider(0.1,5.0,0.1,3)):
    print a

This defines a slider with values from 0.1 to 5 that steps by 0.1, and the interact will launch with the slider set to 3.
