How can I edit a QGIS project file so that it would open, save and edit data from given folder and save the results for different directory? Kind of like MapInfo's Wor. file.

I read from QGIS manual that the project file is saved in a XML format, but for some reason I can't open it.

    Could you please be more clear what exactly you are trying to achieve? Espescially for people who do not know the .wor file format.

You have to unzip Qgz file first. Then you can edit the qgs file with any text editor.
