Inf and NaN values are not read in correctly for ascii datasets
Paraview cannot correctly load an ascii data set which contains Inf and/or NaN. According to @demarle, it's related to this issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11420263/is-it-possible-to-read-infinity-or-nan-values-using-input-streams.
To reproduce, load the below file in Paraview. This should produce an error message about a data array being too short.
