Almost any tutorial will show you how to read/write an ascii file.
Numpy is fairly irrelevant, you just need to convert the data into
a strong before writing (or from a string when reading).

Look at the beginners pages on python.org for a list of tutorials.

Or just go to the Handling Files topic in mine...
