### Importing file to Quadratic field

I have a file with a list of elements inside the square of a Quadratic field, i.e. QQ(sqrt)^2. The file looks like [[2 + sqrt,4 - 2*sqrt],[2,sqrt],...]. I want to import this file into a single matrix over the field, in the previous example F. = QuadraticField(13). Currently, I read everything in as a string then convert to the matrix, but there must be an easier way to do this. I am somewhat new to python programming in general. 2 improved style fidbc 2198 ●4 ●21 ●51
