Creating 0-24 by .5

I want to create an observation for each half hour from 0-24 hours. Is there a way that i can do this without manually coding each half hour ( writing in .5 1 1.5 2 2.5.... manually)
Thanks!!!

Re: Creating 0-24 by .5

I am not sure if you want to store in a sas time variable or as you describe in you question, but I have an example for both situations.

data time1;
do semiour1=0 to 86400 by 1800;
put semiour1 time.;
output;
end;
run;

data time2;
do semihour2=0.5 to 24 by 0.5;
put semihour2;
output;

end;
run;
