Projects / Tools Tools Tools is a GUI-based Java program that complements OpenOffice. The tools include a Writer file properties viewer, a modified word counter, and a bibliography converter. The file properties viewer reads, displays, and searches the properties (title, subject, keywords, and comments) of all OpenOffice Word Processor documents in a directory. The view can be customized and auto-loaded on program start-up. The word counter counts words bounded by spaces. This is different from the word count provided by OpenOffice, which counts hyphenated words as more than one word. The bibliography converter imports bibliographic information from BibTeX and OpenOffice files and exports them to a database format supported by OpenOffice to be used as a bibliography database.
