#314: read_array is slow for large files

 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:          
 read_array is significantly slower than e.g. "load" in Octave,
 when reading matrices from large ASCII files (sizes ~1 MB).

 Would writing a replacement or an alternative ascii load function
 in C be a sensible thing to do?
