[Numpy-discussion] loadtxt broken if file does not end in newline

I can look at it.

Would everyone be satisfied with a solution using regular expressions ?
That is, looking for the following pattern:

pattern = re.compile(r"""
    ^\s* # leading white space
    (.*) # Data
    %s?  # Zero or one comment character
    (.*) # Comments
    \s*$ # Trailing white space
    """%comments, re.VERBOSE)

match = pattern.search(line)
line, comment = match.groups()

instead of

line = line[:line.find(comments)].strip()

By the way, is there a test function for loadtxt and savetxt ? I couldn't
find one.
