[Tutor] Declaring a Python/C Package and Accessing Python Constants from C API

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a python package that includes both a native
python module and then a python module created using the Python/C API.
 I have several questions pertaining to this area.  First, how do I
make the  C API module aware of the python module.  Specifically, I
have declared all of my constant variables because it was much easier
and cleaner, but I want to be able to access those constants from my C
API module.  I know I can declare the python module globally, but the
python module and the C API module are part of the same package.  I
have read Python C/API guide, and I could not find anything like an
example or explanation related to performing this task.  I have also
seen a couple of posts online, but they seem to miss over this point.
Is there anyone out there that has done something like this before?  I
am on a Posix/Linux system.

Thanks in advance,
