Hello.

I want to read numerical data from an output file, which also contains
text data.

The file test.t19 is as follows:

id
1
=beg=50800 (Nodal Coordinates)
            1 0.000000E+00 0.000000E+00
            2 0.150000E+01 0.000000E+00
            3 0.150000E+01 0.150000E+01
            4 0.000000E+00 0.150000E+01

I want to read the coordinates of nodes 1~4.

So what I did is as follows:

snum = OpenRead["test.t19"]
FindList[snum, "Coordinates"]
ReadList[snum, Number, RecordLists -> True]

The result was
{{0}}

,though I expected
{{1,0.000000E+00,0.000000E+00},{2,0.150000E+01,0.000000E+00},{3,
0.150000E+01,0.150000E+01},{4,0.000000E+00,0.150000E+01}}

I thought that the pointer would move to the next line of the line
including the word "Coordinates."

Can some one help me on my problem?
