Just "write" to your file.  For stdout (equiv of print), you can use:

def msg(txt):
    sys.stdout.write(txt)
    sys.stdout.flush()     #to see results immediately


Thus:
    msg('stuff here,')
    msg('more\n')

If you don't care about flushing, try:
    out=sys.stdout.write
    out('stuff here,')
    out('more\n')
