In your case, foo.bar(args) == bar(foo, args) - that is call Uniform  
Function Call Syntax, that is:

filename.writefln("%s\t%f", someString, someDouble); -> writefln(filename,  
"%s\t%f", someString, someDouble);

which in turn tries using filename as a format.

Try using std.stream. It should be something like this:

File file = new File(fileName, FileMode.OutNew); // open file for writing,  
create new if none exists
file.writefln("hello, %s!", "world");

Not tested but should work.
