text and numbers

What's the best way to input text and data from the same file?

This does not work:

data = [
'name1' 12 34
'name2' 56 78

I want to input a structure that has both text and numbers, and then
separate out submatrices.  Of course I can use perl and friends to
separate them into two files and input them separately, but that
introduces consistency issues.

I remember asking this question about matlab once, but can't locate the
answer now.  Is octave behaving similarly to matlab in this regard?
