[SciPy-user] scipy.io.numpyio fwrite - appending or updating an array

I'll look into memmap as Stefan suggested. If Robert Kern's out there,
do you have any comments about what I might be doing wrong.
Id on't know memmap at all yet - basically each file will have multiple
numpy arrays written, read, appended and updated as required.
