Save Binary data.

Hello All.
  I have a program that downloads 'gigabytes' of Axis NetCam photos per day.
Right now, I set up the process to put the images into a queue, and every 30
or so seconds, 'pop' them from the queue and save them to disc.   I save
them as individual files.

  I think that I'd like to modify it to save into one file 100-200 images,
so that I don't have directories with 50,000-90,000 frames before handing
that off to a DivX Encoder.

  I don't know if I need to use something like cPickle, or maybe just save
them as a binary data file (which would be a temp file until later in the
day when I open it to begin the encoding process.)

Can someone please help me with some direction?

Thank you!
