Support for files in .zip or .egg files

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.
