Hey guys -
I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct place for this question but here goes:
I consider myself to be fairly proficient with pd and recently I have been getting excited about python through a computer science class at my university.  I was especially excited to learn that it is possible to use python to script objects in pd using py/pyext and purity.  I've become quite frustrated, however because i haven't been able to figure out how to get these libraries/modules to work.  I'm running OSX leopard with a highly customized version of pd-extended.
Anybody have any ideas?

Alright I'm feeling like a real n00b here but i've got another question:  I was trying to install the binaries for the older flext libraries and they are in .pd_darwin format.  It's not working on my version of pd so I was wondering if there is an easy workaround or if I am going to have to compile the source myself.  And if so, could someone give me a few pointers in that direction.  Like I said, working with code is a new thing to me and i'm stabbing around in the dark.
