Hello all, after upgrading from version 5.1 to 5.2 I'm encountering problems with the import of data from a file. My programs still run under version 5.1 but show a different behaviour in version 5.2. Here is the way it works in version 5.1: In[]:Import["ex_values.dat","Table"] Out[]:{{2.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{-2.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{7.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{-7.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{12.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{-12.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{17.5,-35.8919,0,0,180}, .... Everything is fine, Mathematica imports a list of lists, or a matrix if you like it that way. Here is what happens with version 5.2 (same data-file) In[]:Import["ex_values.dat","Table"] Out[]:{{2.5,-35.8919,0,0,180},{-2.5,-35.8919,0,0,180,7.5,-35.8919,0,0,180,-7.5,-35.8919,0,0,180,12.5,-35.8919,0,0,180,-12.5,-35.8919,0,0,180,17.5,-35.8919,0,0,180, ...... The first entry is correct (see above), but the 6'th to n'th value are just members of one big list. Anybody knows what's going on here, is this a bug in version 5.2 ? (I would be able find a workaround to get things running again, but this is not the point here) Thanks for your help ! Stefan
