The EOF part looks correctly to me (although I didn't check whether
there aren't other places where the check should be added too). The
current behaviour when the character is recognized in Eof function
(depending on EOF_CTRLZ conditional), but not otherwise, isn't very
consistent, IMHO. However, let's wait what other core team members
would think about it.

Regarding function ReadNumeric, I think there's at least one open
issue there, and that's missing handling of 'e' (or 'E') character
for exponent. I'm not sure whether there are any other allowed
characters, but at least this one should be supported.
