Re: loading ascii data

I have had this problem when my data contains a . for a missing value.  SAS 
produces this character for missing values as well as other packages.  That is 
my only guess.  Unfortunately this is all the guidance I can give.  I guess it 
would be nice if the load function would print the offending line.  My guess is 
that that would not be too hard.  Why not have a look at it and if you come up 
with a patch then share it with others?
