Read_nested_list

Function: read_nested_list (<S>)

Function: read_nested_list (<S>, <separator_flag>) Reads the source <S> and returns its entire content as a nested list. The source <S> may be a file name or a stream.

read_nested_list returns a list which has a sublist for each line of input. Lines need not have the same numbers of elements. Empty lines are not ignored: an empty line yields an empty sublist.

The recognized values of <separator_flag> are comma, pipe, semicolon, and space. If <separator_flag> is not specified, the file is assumed space-delimited.
