This is the third public release of our ExternalFile
Why not simply use ExtFile
<http://www.zope.org/Members/MacGregor/ExtFile>? Because ExternalFile
supports pointing to a file "in situ" like a symbolic link, rather than
copying it into some central repository directory.
This may not seem like a big deal, until you consider that those files
might be stored in a revision control system like CVS. ExternalFile
gives you the ability to create a Zope object that points to a file in,
for example, a CVS sandbox for its content.
This new release is compatible with CVSFile-0-7. It also features
"workalike" capabilities. ExternalFile can behave like any of the
ExternalFile is usable by itself. It is also the base class for CVSFile
