how to read real numbers in 1.0000e+00 notation

I have to read into mathematica ASCII data files containing floating
point numbers in the notation 
that uses the character "e" to separate mantissa and exponent. Is there a
mathematica function that converts this into mathematica's proper
representation, or do I have to use sed or something similar to
replace e's by something like "*10^" ?  

Thank you.
