Chunk 79 - Filter Utility Mark One

After writing the utility I found it was impossible to deploy it as a standalone application, as it uses the java io package, which complicates matters.
The utility can be built by cutting and pasting the source code into the IDE and saving it. Then either add the font and directories manually and add some images to each folder, or download and extract, a prebuilt data folder and copy it into the application directory.
The utility works well but it is a pain that the reader has to build it themselves. After using the java io to open files I discovered that processing has its own way of loading and saving files complete with a file chooser. Hopefully, our next version will be easier to code and deploy.
