[MMTK] keeping the normal modes array in a file

Hi all,

I want to keep the normal modes vectors in a  file so that I can use them in an outside program. 
I have to same requests:
1. what is the correct syntax to do so? I have for the moment in my script an export loop like this:
for n in [6, 7, 8]:
  universe.writeToFile('mode_%d_plus.pdb' % n, conf+scale*modes[n])
  universe.writeToFile('mode_%d_minus.pdb' % n, conf-scale*modes[n])
  universe.writeToFile('file' %n, modes[n].array)

2. IN the only discussion in the archives regarding this type of queries,  Konrad mentioned to be careful in using the vectors for outside MMTK purposes. Could you tell me why?

All the best,
