Try pkg_resources.resource_string or pkg_resources.resource_file - it
allows you to retrieve any object in an egg as a string or file-like

Subject: [Distutils] Getting source from __file__ in egg?
If I have a package installed as a zip file egg and ask for its __file__
I might get a reference which looks like a normal file system path but
Python 2.4.5 (#4, Apr 12 2008, 09:09:16)
[GCC 3.4.1] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more
>>> import magnitude
>>> import os
How do I actually lay my hands on the .py file source for the magnitude
module in this case? Do I have to recognize somehow that
.../magnitude-0.9.3-py2.4.egg is a zip archive and resort to extracting
the Python source with the zipfile module?
