HOW TO USE
==========
This tool provides a context menu action to close infrequently-visited files, so that one can reclaim some real estate back in the tabbed panel, and reduce the memory usage of JBuilder. It was created based on the assumption that, although one may browse through a large set of source files when working on a problem, his/her interest is localized on a much smaller set of files (like a dozen?) - these are actually the ones being edited or constantly looked at; the rest can be closed to save space.

Right-click on any of the tabs in the content manager now brings up a menu with a new option: "Reclaim Tab Space: n", where n is the number of tabs that can be reclaimed (or, in other words, the number of infrequently-visited files that this opentool will close).

The menu action closes the infrequently-visited files.

Modified files (those that are yet to be saved) are *NEVER* targeted by this tool.
