Reading files is slow

I have some 8 MB data files that I want to manipulate in Octave. Once they're in memory, I can work with them just fine. But reading them in takes minutes. I'm currently using textread for input because it's so flexible. So, in all of your collective experience, what is the fastest way to read data files into memory?
