If you want to dump the binary data, you can use:


If you need an ASCI representation, you can use various forms of:

format_string = '%f '* A.shape[1] + '\n' 
for r in range(A.shape[0]):

You could probably use map to speed it up a little as well.

I'd love to see an array-oreinted version of fscanf and fprintf to make
this faster and easier, but I have yet to get around to writing one.
