Parsing Data

I am trying to parse through  this data for analysis. I am new to python and
wondering what would be the quickest way to extract the data from this file.
The data files consists of comments (starting with ! and #). Then, the data
follows. All I want is the data in array ( I don't care about the
comments),and the data format is  freq[], s11[real], s11[imag],

 Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
