    Reading scientific notation

    I have a file that has some numbers in it that are in scientific notation. I need to read them in and then do some calculations with them. How would I go about doing this??

    I've tried reading them as doubles with a %e and a number of other things but just keep getting a very large negative number that is in scientific notation but is not the number I told it to read!
