Design an implementation of working search tool. The tool will search .odt files by date and content.
OD-What?
.odt files are a particular kind of file, many word-processor programs can save to .odt file format.
Why .odt and not .doc or .txt?

The program Search-ODT has a graphical user interface referred to as a GUI. The search tool is composed of two main parts. The first part is the search engine wrapper. The second part is the afore mentioned GUI..."
