[Q]: Reading Input

I'm trying to read a file that contains expressions like 1.23456789E-2 which of course stands for 1.23456789*(10^-2), It is standard output from a fortran program. Unfortunately, Mma reads this as 1.23456789*(the number e) - 2, which does me no good. Is there an easy way to tell Mma what it's reading? Thanks.
