New submission from tempname <partner55296497 at aravensoft.com>:

the following code actually dumps the heap into the temp file... very
strange. Make sure the file doesn't exist before running the script.
Only the list of numbers should be written to the file, but alot of junk
is added.

x = str(range(10))
f = open('c:\\temp.txt', 'w+')
for i in range(10):
    y = f.readline()
    print repr(y)
