I am trying to put many numpy files to get one big numpy file, I tried to follow those two links Append multiple numpy files to one big numpy file in python and Python append multiple files in given order to one big file this is what I did:

```
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
import glob
import os, sys
fpath ="/home/user/Desktop/OutFileTraces.npy"
npyfilespath ="/home/user/Desktop/test"
os.chdir(npyfilespath)
with open(fpath,'wb') as f_handle:
for npfile in glob.glob("*.npy"):
# Find the path of the file
filepath = os.path.join(npyfilespath, npfile)
print filepath
# Load file
dataArray= np.load(filepath)
print dataArray
np.save(f_handle,dataArray)
dataArray= np.load(fpath)
print dataArray
```

An example of the result that I have:

```
/home/user/Desktop/Trace=96
[[ 0.01518007 0.01499514 0.01479736 ..., -0.00392216 -0.0039761
-0.00402747]]
[[-0.00824758 -0.0081808 -0.00811402 ..., -0.0077236 -0.00765425
-0.00762086]]
/home/user/Desktop/Trace=97
[[ 0.00614908 0.00581004 0.00549154 ..., -0.00814741 -0.00813457
-0.00809347]]
[[-0.00824758 -0.0081808 -0.00811402 ..., -0.0077236 -0.00765425
-0.00762086]]
/home/user/Desktop/Trace=98
[[-0.00291786 -0.00309509 -0.00329287 ..., -0.00809861 -0.00797789
-0.00784175]]
[[-0.00824758 -0.0081808 -0.00811402 ..., -0.0077236 -0.00765425
-0.00762086]]
/home/user/Desktop/Trace=99
[[-0.00379887 -0.00410453 -0.00438963 ..., -0.03497837 -0.0353842
-0.03575151]]
[[-0.00824758 -0.0081808 -0.00811402 ..., -0.0077236 -0.00765425
-0.00762086]
```

this line represents the first trace:

```
[[-0.00824758 -0.0081808 -0.00811402 ..., -0.0077236 -0.00765425
-0.00762086]]
```

It is repeated all the time.

I asked the second question two days ago, at first I think that I had the best answer, but after trying to model to print and lot the final file 'OutFileTraces.npy' I found that my code:

1/ doesn't print numpy files from folder 'test' with respecting their order(trace0,trace1, trace2,...)

2/ saves only the last trace in the file, I mean by that when print or plot the OutFileTraces.npy, I found just one trace , it is the first one.

So I need to correct my code because really I am blocked. I would be very grateful if you could help me.

Thanks in advance.

As discussed in

loading arrays saved using numpy.save in append mode

it is possible to save multiple times to an open file, and it possible to load multiple times. That's not documented, and probably not preferred, but it works. `savez`

archive is the preferred method for saving multiple arrays.

Here's a toy example:

```
In [777]: with open('multisave.npy','wb') as f:
...: arr = np.arange(10)
...: np.save(f, arr)
...: arr = np.arange(20)
...: np.save(f, arr)
...: arr = np.ones((3,4))
...: np.save(f, arr)
...:
In [778]: ll multisave.npy
-rw-rw-r-- 1 paul 456 Feb 13 08:38 multisave.npy
In [779]: with open('multisave.npy','rb') as f:
...: arr = np.load(f)
...: print(arr)
...: print(np.load(f))
...: print(np.load(f))
...:
[0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9]
[ 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19]
[[ 1. 1. 1. 1.]
[ 1. 1. 1. 1.]
[ 1. 1. 1. 1.]]
```

Here's a simple example of saving a list of arrays of the same shape

```
In [780]: traces = [np.arange(10),np.arange(10,20),np.arange(100,110)]
In [781]: traces
Out[781]:
[array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]),
array([10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19]),
array([100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109])]
In [782]: arr = np.array(traces)
In [783]: arr
Out[783]:
array([[ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9],
[ 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19],
[100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109]])
In [785]: np.save('mult1.npy', arr)
In [786]: data = np.load('mult1.npy')
In [787]: data
Out[787]:
array([[ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9],
[ 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19],
[100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109]])
In [788]: list(data)
Out[788]:
[array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]),
array([10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19]),
array([100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109])]
