Thanks for the pointer. I am not using Py_CompileXXX because i could
only find Py_CompileString... i could not find a file version of it
(Which i thought should exist).

My original email though i copied and pasted the wrong function into.
Instead of:

i meant to use:

Basically i will open a FILE* for the file requested, parse it and load
it into the module. Using this method i don't have to load its contents
first into a string to be compiled, but just get the python library to
parse directly from the file.

It all seems to work fine now. Thanks for the help.
