Release: v1.8.1.0, 2015-04-17Support: DonationCoder thread

Count all lines of some specifically formatted script files (rtf, doc, docx, txt, pdf, odt, ods, csv), and output all character names and the count of lines/dialogues spoken into an Excel file.

Usage and examples can be found in the readme file in the package.

What's new:

2015-04-17, v1.8.1.0Fixed: FileFormat5 didn't handle .csv files with semicolon separators, and intermediate output (debug-level 3) for this format lacked new-lines after each line.
2014-03-21, v1.8.0.0Added: FileFormat6, like FileFormat4 but now allows Character names of 1 or 2 words. This may give some mis-calculations, but is on special request.
Updated: Refreshed libraries POI v3.10-final and PdfBox v1.8.4
When Upgrading:
- Remove the lib subdirectory and replace all files
2013-06-21, v1.7.2.1Fixed: Input of Name and Text column name was not transferred correctly to the running instance from the GUI.
Improved: GUI layout was a bit stretched.
2013-06-19, v1.7.2.0Added: Fileformat 5 parameters -cn and -ct now also accept column-numbers instead of a name. First column is 1.
Improved: GUI now has fields for Name and Text columns for Fileformat 5. There also the column numbers can be entered.
2013-06-14, v1.7.1.0Added: Handling of doc/docx contents as csv (FileFormat 5), including specifying the name and text column titles (not settable from GUI), may need to explicitly set that file-format
Added: Option -ci <lines> for ignoring the first lines of a file, 'skiplines' in the ini file
Added: Option -cm <max> for setting the max. number of words for a character-name (default 4), 'maxcharacternameparts' in the ini file
These new options are also available from the GUI
Improved: If debuglevel 3 or greater is set (-3 or -4), the loaded file-content is saved as text to a new file with the same name and '.txt.tmp' appended.
Minor: Slightly adjusted some GUI screen-labels.
2013-03-09, v1.7.0.0Added: New FileFormat nr. 5, for reading .csv files, with a Name and Text column (columnnames can be configured)

When Upgrading:
- Remove the lib subdirectory and replace all files
v1.6.0.1Bugfix: Autodetect fileformat from GUI stopped working.
2012-11-18, v1.6.0.0Added: New FileFormat nr. 4, based on doc-files supplied by Saira, the original initiator of this tool.
note: This format is quite similar to FileFormat 2, so it may need to be forcibly used on some files/filesets.
Added: Setting the FileFormat from the commandline using -ff parameter, or set from the ini file, as documented in the readme.
Changed: GUI now has the Fileformat combo box enabled, to force a specific file format to be used.
Improved: Some more robustness while handling the file contents.
