def save(file, arr, allow_pickle=True, fix_imports=True): """ Save an array to a binary file in NumPy ``.npy`` format. Parameters ---------- file : file, str, or pathlib.Path File or filename to which the data is saved. If file is a file-object, then the filename is unchanged. If file is a string or Path, a ``.npy`` extension will be appended to the file name if it does not already have one. allow_pickle : bool, optional Allow saving object arrays using Python pickles. Reasons for disallowing pickles include security (loading pickled data can execute arbitrary code) and portability (pickled objects may not be loadable on different Python installations, for example if the stored objects require libraries that are not available, and not all pickled data is compatible between Python 2 and Python 3). Default: True fix_imports : bool, optional Only useful in forcing objects in object arrays on Python 3 to be pickled in a Python 2 compatible way. If `fix_imports` is True, pickle will try to map the new Python 3 names to the old module names used in Python 2, so that the pickle data stream is readable with Python 2. arr : array_like Array data to be saved. See Also -------- savez : Save several arrays into a ``.npz`` archive savetxt, load Notes ----- For a description of the ``.npy`` format, see the module docstring of `numpy.lib.format` or the NumPy Enhancement Proposal http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/neps/npy-format.html Examples -------- >>> from tempfile import TemporaryFile >>> outfile = TemporaryFile() >>> x = np.arange(10) >>> np.save(outfile, x) >>> outfile.seek(0) # Only needed here to simulate closing & reopening file >>> np.load(outfile) array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]) """
