fair enough, though I'm not sure when I'll have time to do it.
I do wonder if anyone else thinks it would be useful to have multiple
delimiters as an option. I got the idea because with fromfile(), if you
specify, say ',' as the delimiter, it won't use '\n', only a comma, so
there is no way to quickly read a whole bunch of comma delimited data like:
so I'd like to be able to say to use either ',' or '\n' as the delimiter.
However, if I understand loadtxt() correctly, it's handling the new
lines separately anyway (to get a 2-d array), so this use case isn't an
issue. So how likely is it that someone would have:
1 2 3, 4, 5
6 7 8, 8, 9
and want to read that into a single 2-d array?
I'm not sure I've seen it.
