I'm obviously misunderstanding something because I can't figure out why 
you would write:

     map(file.write, [mydata])

instead of

     file.write(mydata)

Is your task to write a sequence/iterator of items into a file?  I would 
expect your example to look like:

     map(file.write, mydata)

which I would write as:

     file.writelines(mydata)

Could you explain a little more what your intent is here?
