New submission from yac00b <qqbbaa at gmail.com>:

I am not exactly sure if it is a proper place for my problem. I am quite new to Python in general.
I am working on Windows 7 with Python 3.2. I wanted to upload a module to PyPI. To do that I have to register with the command-line. I use the command "python3 setup.py register" and then I have to choose whether to use existing login, to create new etc. I am already registered on the website. When I choose 1 and press Enter, it still wants me to put a proper number.
I searched the web and I found out that the solution is to specify my username and password in the .pypirc file. The problem is that I have no idea where to find this file. Should I maybe create it? The ".pypirc" is the extension? What is the exact name of the file?
Or maybe is there any other way to solve this problem?
