read file, skip columns

I'm trying to read a tab separated data file into Octave.  Here's my issue:

I am trying to read in a data file that has a few string columns, and then a
few columns of numbers, and then the last 3 columns (out of 7) are the ones
I want to read into variables in octave.  What command do I use to skip a
certain number of colums?  Or can I assign dummy variables to the first four
columns and then erase them later?  Do I use load(), or do I use fgetl?

How do I do this?
