Hey everyone,

I'm checking some bessel functions in python using mathematica, and I can't find anything online about how to import values into python with exponentials.

I know how to values with exponents. For example:

`x=2032.43 * 10 **23`

However, when I read in a data file, say with one column of values such as the one above, such a notation is not recognized by:

```
f=open('data.dat', 'r')
for line in f:
print float(line)
```

I've also tried other notations. What is the correct notation? Thanks
