	       odffilesearch - File selection by keywords

	       odffilesearch -R	"D:\Documents\*.odt" openoffice	desktop	XML

	       produces	the list of the	ODF Text documents present in the given
	       directory and its subdirectories, and containing	the words
	       "openoffice", "desktop" AND "XML"

	       odffilesearch -command "rm -f %f" "*.ods	*.odt" lost dismiss cancel

	       executes	the "rm	-f filename" (i.e. deletes the file in a Unix system)
	       for each	ODT or ODS file	present	in the current directory
	       and containing the words	"lost",	"dismiss" AND "cancel"

	       odffilesearch [-options]	<file filter> <keyword list>

	       This utility allows the user to retrieve	a list of files	matching
	       a given set of keywords or regular expressions. A file is selected
	       when it contains, in its	text and/or in its metadata (title, subject,
	       keywords	or description), all the given search strings.

	       The selected files are echoed to	the standard output (one file per
	       line), so this utility can be used as a filter piping its results
	       to another program. Alternatively, a given shell	command	can be
	       launched	by the script each time	a file matches,	allowing on-the-fly
	       processing of the selected documents.

	       The files filter	may content one	or more	space-separated	paths.
	       Each path may content jokers. So	it's possible to explore several
	       directories and/or several filename patterns.

	       All the arguments after the file	filter are processed as	search

	       -R -recursive
		       include the subdirectories of each given	search directory
	       -verbose	-trace -debug
		       echo some processing comments
		       activate	the warning messages of	the OpenOffice::OODoc API
	       -log <file>
		       like -verbose, but then messages	are sent to the	given file
		       and don't pollute the standard output
	       -result <file>
	       -output <file>
		       send the	list of	matching files to the given file and not
		       to the standard output
	       -criteria <file>
		       get search criteria from	a file (one per	line); the loaded
		       search keywords may be combined with additional criteria
		       passed with the command line, if	any.
	       -command	<command> -exec	<command>
		       execute a shell command for each	matching file ;	if the
		       command string contains "%f", this substring is replaced
		       with the	name of	the selected file ; if this option is
		       provided, the selection list is not echoed to the standard
		       output ;	if -verbose is on, the value returned by the
		       command is echoed
	       -encoding <encoding>
		       selects the user's character set	; this option is mandatory
		       if one or more search criteria contain characters not
		       belonging to the	default	character set
