 It would be good if .tofile() supported anything with a write-method. I
 was debugging my code and wanted to see exactly what
 my_array.tofile(sys.stdout, ' ') would write. However, as I was working in
 WingIDE, sys.stdout was actually a StringIO, and this code failed.

  >>> type(r[field])

  <type 'numpy.float32'>

  >>> sys.stdout

  <StringIO.StringIO instance at 0x161a170>

  >>> r[field].tofile(sys.stdout, ' ', '%s')

  Traceback (most recent call last):

   File "<string>", line 1, in <fragment>

  IOError: first argument must be a string or open file
