I am a newbie here
I am trying to read "space separated floating point data" from file
I read about csv module by searching this group,
but I couldn't read space separated values with csv.
(which may be matter of course..)
I also read about numpy.fromfile(file, sep=' ') which i can use.
but on my machine(ubuntu linux) numpy is unknown module,
which I didn't install by myself.
While trying to install numpy accroding to its homepage.
i am quite confused.
it's talking about the Numerical Python,
and it says to test whether it is installed or not,
try import Numeric instead of numpy.
I got Nurmeric modules and
as a matter of fact i got a file named '_numpy.so' in lib directory.
I can import _numpy but _numpy does not have 'fromfile' method
My question is:
1. Do i need to install numpy module?
2. Then Is it different from Numeric module?
3. Then where can i get it?
4. Or what is general way to read 'space separated values' from file?
Thanks in advance.
