load() is used for data stored in Octave / Matlab specific formats, usually
created using save().  See the help files for each.

You probably want "dlmread()" and its cousin "xlsread()" (or whatever its called
-- I use text only).  dlmwrite() would be its pair.

This should be in an FAQ -- it isn't particularly intuitive, and LOTS of people
want to read in data that is either comma or tab delimited.

Hope that answers your question and that I didn't misunderstand ;)
