Maxima uses algol-like control statements.  So try


for ilat:0 step 1 thru 900 do
  for ilon:0 step 1 thru 900 do
    ( lat:bfloat(ilat/10),
      print(float(lat),float(lon),float(res[1]),float(res[2])) )$


Warning: print(-1); yields "- 1", so you might need to run output.txt
thru a sed script to eliminate the space before reading the data into
another program.
