Windows explorer can search for files containing certain text,
on Unixes there is find|grep.
The code you are asking for is in LineArea.java.
Be warned: it is very messy, and FOP does *not* hyphenate words, it
just fakes it very successfully. One of the problems is that text
making up a single word may be passed in multiple chunks to the
routine doing the formatting, the other is that it isn't *really*
clear what's a word if scripts are arbitrarily mixed. FOP is
not language or script sensitive and just assumes that characters
below € make up words, and everything else is just punctuation
but is passed to the hyphenator anyway. In order to have proper word
detection for hyphenation, a Unicode character property DB and TR29
(http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr29/) would be needed.
