How to Import Numbers with + in the Exponential?
I generate data in my C programs and write it to a file using %e format in many of my programs. This leads to numbers like 1.2e-01 and 3.6e+02. When I use Import in Mathematica it handles the negative exponents fine, but things like e+02 or e+00 are treated like strings. How can I get Mathematica to recognize positive exponents as numbers? If I go into each file and eliminate the "+" it does recognize things as numbers, but I don't want to have to edit every data file put out in my calculations. I'm hoping there is a simple workaround, otherwise I classify this behavior as a BAD 'feature'. Help, anyone. Thanks.
