oohighlight - search, replace and highlight text in a document
oohighlight "myfile.sxw" "search string" -r "replacement" -o "target.sxw"
replaces "search string" by "replacement" in the file "myfile.sxw", highlights each replacement with a yellow (default) backgound, then writes the resulting document as "target.sxw"
oohighlight "myfile.sxw" "search string" -color "green"
highlights each occurrence of "search string" in "myfile.sxw" with a green background color, without changing the text (without "-o" option, the changes apply to "myfile.sxw"
With the "minimal" command line, with only a filename and a string as arguments, each matching string is highlighted with a yellow background and represented with the "Standard" style.
-e --encoding "xxxxxx"
character set to use, if different from the default
-r --replacement "new string"
"new string" is used as a replacement for "search string"
-c --color "code"
an RGB color code, expressed either as the concatenation of
3 comma-separated decimal values (each one in the range
0..255, ex: "72,61,139" for a dark slate blue), or a 6-digit
hexadecimal number, preceded by a "#" (ex: #00ff00 for green)
or, if a colormap is available and known in your
OpenOffice::OODoc installation, a symbolic color name (ex:
-p --property "property=value"
for OOo advanced users only ! this option can be repeated;
each occurrence gives an additional property for the
highlight style (font name, size, foreground color, ...)
For example, with the combination of -p fo:color=#ff0000
and -p fo:font-size=18pt, the highlighted text will be
made of 18pt-sized, red characters. In order to master
these option, you should have some knowledge of the
OpenOffice styling vocabulary
-o --output "filename"
-t --target "filename"
an alternative filename to save the modified document, when
the source document must remain unchanged
To install OpenOffice::OODoc, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
