Hi,

I am importing a rather large .dat file that consists of integers and fractions. The problem is that Mathmatica reads the fractions as strings: e.g. 1/12 is imported as "1/12" etc.

Any idea on how I can convert the strings to numbers? I do a ReplaceAll assignment DataNew=DataOld/.{"1/12"->1/12,...} but it's too tedious since I have many fractions.

Thanks,
Vassilis
