Hi everyone, I have the following input file: %Object Name : left asis 1 168 0.695873 6.544617 62.457849 82.505554 1 169 0.700040 8.332349 61.770844 82.268933 1 170 0.704207 9.848946 61.490948 82.065082 %Object Name : right asis 2 168 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 2 169 0.700040 -4.581314 36.861102 86.754218 %Object Name : right asis 3 168 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 3 169 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 I want to read this file in the form of a matrix (real numbers), so that the matrix has the following (eliminate the %Object line while reading): 1 168 0.695873 6.544617 62.457849 82.505554 1 169 0.700040 8.332349 61.770844 82.268933 1 170 0.704207 9.848946 61.490948 82.065082 2 168 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 2 169 0.700040 -4.581314 36.861102 86.754218 3 168 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 3 169 0.695873 -6.179786 37.250156 86.780951 So the real numbers matrix is of size [7][6] I have tried quite a few things but nothing seems to be working. Thanks in advance for the help, Namrata
