Dear all numpy users,

I want to read a csv file with many (49) columns, the first column is string
and remaning can be float.
how can I avoid type in like

data=numpy.genfromtxt('data.csv',delimiter=';',names=True, dtype=(S10,
float, float, ......))

Can I just specify the  type of first cloumn is tring and the remaing float?
how can I do that?

Thanks a lot,
