[IronPython] Compilation to IL

I'm sorry that I set expectations too high with my note about static
compilation on the original ironpython web page.  This is a feature that can
and should work well, but today it is only barely there.  I've updated the
web page to make it clear that this feature isn't really working in 0.6.

To see the state-of-the-art today, make a very simple Python script, like
hello.py (with 'print "hello world" in it).  Then run it by passing it to
IronPythonConsole.  After you run it, there should be a file "__main__.exe"
in the appropriate directory.  You should be able to run this file now as a
stand-alone executable.  You can even rename this file to "hello.exe" if
you're feeling really fancy.

Subject: [IronPython] Compilation to IL


I recently downloaded IronPython and would like to compile my python 
programs directly to IL, yet I can't seem to figure out how. Am I 
missing something obvious?

Please advise,
