[SciPy-user] loadtxt error

Ok it looks like I had a couple of rows with values missing in the third column. I didn't notice before since matlab and octave assumes zeros in those cases. Is there a function in numpy/scipy that can read files like that or should I fix the file before reading it in?

thanks for your help.

No problem here either, with numpy 1.0.4. Is there garbage later on in 
the file?
