[Q]: Reading Input

  • Subject: [mg3192] [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.
