Scan to 3D: Does anyone know what SW is reading in as it opens a *.txt file?

I am playing with Scan to 3D.

In a very backwards CAD program, I am exporting a *.pts file.  I am able to import into SW, by changing the extension to *.xyz.  Oddly enough it works, but I am curious to know if all data in each delimited line are being used or if just parts of it are?

Examples of line formats are either:

-x,y,z

-x,y,z,i,j,k

-x,y,z,i,j,k,suface number

Does anyone know what SW is reading in as it opens a *.txt file?
