Support for files in .zip or .egg files

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Source Code Editor »

Source and other text files stored in .zip or .egg files may be loaded into the editor as readonly files. Wing is unable to write changes to a file within a .zip or .egg file or otherwise write to or create a .zip or .egg file.

When stepping through code, using goto definition, or using other methods to goto a line in a file, a file within a .zip or .egg file will be opened automatically. To open a file through the open file dialog, specify the name of the .zip or .egg file and add a / followed by the name of the file to open.
