Subject: Re: import of the .txt file with time values
I don't think you can do it all in the INPUT statement. Try something like
input (hour minute second)(2.);
time = hms(hour,minute,second);
This depends on the subfields being aligned, even when there is a one-digit
hour. If that does not hold, it gets messier.
