Mathematica thinks (understandably) that you want to divide by 0.1 .  If you change your statement to:

kk=0: newlist = {1,0,1,0,0,1}/.(1:>++kk)

you will get the answer you are looking for.

I have M 4.0, window 95.
I have a list of 0's and 1's, and I want the one's to perform a consecutive
numeration. For example, transform {1,0,1,0,0,1} into {1,0,2,0,0,3}.

The easiest (and most elegant, I think) way to do it is with a counter and
rule delayed:
kk=0; newlist={1,0,1,0,0,1} /.1:>++k

However, the answer I get from this operation is completely
odd:{10.,0,10.,0,0,10.}:>++k.  I closed my session and re-started my
computer, but I keep getting the same stuff.  I don't understand what is
happening. By the way, this problem didn't appear in M3.0.

Can somebody help me?
