[Numpy-discussion] Another question on reading from binary FORTRAN file

Thanks, Mike.
This seems to be a really easy way.
One more question.
It turns out my file also contains a character string of 16 characters.
I tried
np.fromfile(fd,np.str,16)
But that gives an error.
Can I read a characterstring with fromfile?
I know, I can read with fd.read, but I am wondering if there is an
option for fromfile as well.
Thanks,

Mark
