Hi, i am new to PyPy, i'm hoping someone can help me get started.

I want to use translator to turn some python code into a pyx files so that i can compile them and
later load them as modules in my program.  I did a simple test and i was able to get some pyrex
code from the translator, but when i saved that to a pyx file and called 'pyrexc mymodule.pyx' on
it there were errors.  I noticed there is a Pyrex folder (a Pyrex fork?) in the PyPy project, but
i'm not what to use in there to convert mymodule.pyx to a .c file so gcc can compile it.

btw, is todays current version in svn working?  I get alot of errors when calling
translator.view(), i'm doing the test.is_perfect_number tutorial.

thanks for PyPy,
