This might be a weird requirement but it's what I've run into. I Googled but yield nothing.
I'm coding an application who's using a lot of constant attributes / values recorded in an XML file (they'll not change so a static file), things work fine until I generated an egg file for it.
When the logic reaches the XML accessing part, I got one complaint like this: /home/Workspace/my_proj/dist/mps-1.2.0_M2-py2.6.egg/mps/par/client/syntax/syntax.xml
Actually I've bundled the XML file in the path above but seems Python doesn't know how to access it.
The code to access the XML is as...
file_handler = open(path_to_the_file)
lines = file_handler.read().splitlines()
egg files are zipfiles, so you must access "stuff" inside them with the zipfile module of the Python standard libraries, not with the built-in
