formatted data

Sorry if this is an often-asked question, but I was wondering if there was
a way (a package?) to read in a formatted data file (using like a "formatted
read" statement from Fortran).

For example, if a line of the data looks like

 47950  4 9450

I would like to read the data into a list looking like
	{47.950, 4., 9.450}

I looked through MathSource and didn't find anything, but perhaps I 
overlooked something.
