[SciPy-user] issues while loading scatter data file with load() from pylab...

Hi all,

First question.
Using load() function from pylab, array returned is a float64.
Is it possible to directly load it in float32 ?
I don't need the double precision.
And I saw nothing with load?

The issue.

My scatter data has ~7x1e6 points,
stored as x, y, z, v per line.

Using a short C code and fscanf, it takes 12 s and ~240 MB in format 
double to load it.

Using load() from pylab to load this file is endless and need more than 
1 GB.

What's the problem ?
