The raw data for the Alias record, suitable for storing in a resource
or transmitting to other programs.
Resolve the alias. If the alias was created as a relative alias you
should pass the file relative to which it is. Return the FSSpec for
the file pointed to and a flag indicating whether the alias object
itself was modified during the search process.
An interface to the C routine
- Update(file, [file2])
Update the alias to point to the file given. If file2 is
present a relative alias will be created.
Note that it is currently not possible to directly manipulate a resource
as an alias object. Hence, after calling Update or after
Resolve indicates that the alias has changed the Python program
is responsible for getting the data from the alias object and
modifying the resource.
