The original title was "Why does not range() support decimals?".  In general, such questions should be directed to question forums, such as https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list or stackoverflow.com.

This question has been answered on both, with alternatives, in particular on
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/477486/how-to-use-a-decimal-range-step-value
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12403411/range-with-float-step-argument
and other duplicates.

I am leaving this open to add this frequent question to our FAQ, in particular at
https://docs.python.org/3/faq/programming.html#sequences-tuples-lists
with 'range' added.

This answer should include how to use range to get what people generally want.
