expected integer but got "0.1300"  is the error i'm receiving.  It's because of the set int_xc($i) [expr $xc + $l] line but how can i fix it.  I need it to add .13 each time but i keep getting errors grar

No - I think it's the
     incr l 0.1300
that's causing the problem - you can only increment by an integer.  Use a set - expr instead, and you should cure the problem.
