CPAN::Testers::WWW::Statistics::Excel - CPAN Testers Statistics Excel tool.


  my %hash = { logfile => 'my.log' };
  my $ct = CPAN::Testers::WWW::Statistics::Excel->new(%hash);
  $ct->create( source => $source, target => $target );


Using previously formatted data, generate Excel format files.


The Constructor

  • new

    Object constructor. Takes an optional hash, which can contain initial settings for log file creation:

      logfile   - path to log file
      logclean  - append (0) or overwrite/create (1)


  • create

    Method to facilitate the creation of an Excel file.

    Parameter values are contained within a hash to the method:

      source    - path to source HTML containing table
      target    - path to target Excel format file

    In addition the following hash values can also be passed:

      title     - title for the file (Excel property)
      author    - author of the file (Excel property)
      comments  - comments string    (Excel property)
  • logfile

    Accessor for the path to the file to use for log messages. If no path is given either via this method or through the constructor, no log messages are printed.

  • logclean

    Accessor for log creation. If a false value will append log messages, otherwise will overwrite any existing logfile.

CPAN Testers wouldn't exist without the help and support of the Perl community. However, since 2008 CPAN Testers has grown far beyond the expectations of it's original creators. As a consequence it now requires considerable funding to help support the infrastructure.

In early 2012 the Enlightened Perl Organisation very kindly set-up a CPAN Testers Fund within their donatation structure, to help the project cover the costs of servers and services.

If you would like to donate to the CPAN Testers Fund, please follow the link below to the Enlightened Perl Organisation's donation site.

If your company would like to support us, you can donate financially via the fund link above, or if you have servers or services that we might use, please send an email to with details.

Our full list of current sponsors can be found at our I <3 CPAN Testers site.
