What do you mean 'save off assemblies'? I looked at 'ipy -h' as you 
suggested but couldn't find anything of ehlp. I tried 'ipy -O file.py' 
but no optimised file (file.pyo) was generated.
Thanks for the response btw.

[Re] IronPython doesn't support pyc files. There is a way to save off 
assemblies, if you run ipy with -h it should tell you how.

If I try to compile a .pyc file doing the following, I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):

   File "D:\Programming\IronPython 2.7\Lib\py_compile.py", line 126, in

ValueError: unmarshallable object

where 'dummy.py' is a simple test file consisting of:
a = 1

I seem to have noticed that whenever files are imported in a session 
that no .pyc files are automatically generated.
