NAME

odfmetadoc - Document properties management interface

SYNOPSIS

        odfmetadoc <directory>

DESCRIPTION

Simple graphical user interface allowing the user to get and set the metadata of the OpenDocument and OpenOffice.org files (ODT, ODP, ODS, SXW, SXI, SXC,...) in a given directory.

The list of the files is shown in the main window. Each time the user selects a file (by double-clic or OK button), another window appears, with some property fields: title, author, subject, description, keywords. The flat text content is shown in a read-only field. The user can update any property, or insert/delete any keyword. A double-click on a word in the text content field appends the word to the keword list. 'OK' saves the changes in the file.

LIMITS

This script is provided as a demo and test tool, with a very basic user interface. There is no directory selection dialog box. Some file names with blank spaces and/or non-ASCII characters are not properly processed by the graphical user interface in some environments (even if the OODoc API does support the same character sets as the local Perl installation).

REQUIREMENTS

Requires Tk and some Tk extensions (TK::Dialog, Tk::LabFrame, Tk::LabEntry)
