I have been following this list off and on but have not found the
solution to my problem. I want to convert data supplied by a file into
their corresponding internal values.
I have an external file with data that are in the form “variable name”,
tab, followed by their value. The 'value 'can be a single number, an
array of numbers, or a matrix of numbers, For example, the file might
look like this:
b 1,0, 3.0, 5.0
c 5, 6, 11
d [1, 2], [5, 6], [45,55]
e 2*[7, 8]
I can get a, b, and c to convert to single values and arrays, thanks to
this forum, but I cannot figure out a way to convert d into an array of
arrays. I haven’t taclked e yet. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Ideally I would like to match the variable name in the file to the
corresponding and same name already coded in the program. Any ideas how
to do that?
