HDF files will output Inf for very large values.

my data file looks like:

-.022 .033
Inf   -Inf

How can one read this into Mma? 

i define Inf:=Infinity

ReadList[...,Number] won't work.


returns the product of the first line entries and Infinity, -Infinity.

the returned list should be {-.022,.033,Infinity,-Infinity}.
