[R] Export to File...

I've been reading the Data Import and Export manual (page 25 on Connection
chapter) but somehow I can't manage to get what I want.

I have a 28x28 distance matrix, which I would like to export to a file.
What I did was something like:
    zz <- file("ex.data", "w")  # open an output file connection
    cat( traffic.manDist, file = zz )  # traffic.manDist is my matrix name

But instead of exporting the matrix, it export each number in the matrix and
separating each number into one line!

Can anyone tell me where I did wrong?  Much appreciated!
