either map() or a list comprehension

import sys
fname = "test.txt"
lines = open(fname,"r")
for numline, line in enumerate(lines):
   try:
     x, y, z = map(float, line.split())
     # or:
     # x, y, z = [float(item) for item in line.split()]
   except (ValueError, IndexError), e:
     err = "Invalid data format in %s line %s : "%s" (%s)" \
           % (fname, numline, line, e)
     print >> sys.stderr, err
     sys.exit(1)
   else:
     # do whatever appropriate here - anyway
