ok, got the package installed, but it seems to not be working, or the 
examples are messed up.
here is the source

from pychart import *
data = [["Jan", 10], ["Feb", 22], ["Mar", 30]]

ar = area.T(x_coord = category_coord.T(data, 0),
            y_range = (0, None),
            x_axis = axis.X(label="Month"),
            y_axis = axis.Y(label="Value"))
ar.add_plot(bar_plot.T(data = data, label = "Something"))

and here is what i get when i run it.

from: can't read /var/mail/pychart
./categbar.py: line 16: syntax error near unexpected token `data'
./categbar.py: line 16: `data = [["Jan", 10], ["Feb", 22], ["Mar", 30]]'

what do you think may be wrong?
thanks for your help with the package by the way
