NAME

PDL::IO::XLSX - Load/save PDL from/to XLSX file (optimized for speed and large data)

SYNOPSIS

  use PDL;
  use PDL::IO::XLSX ':all';

  my $pdl = rxlsx2D('input.xlsx');
  $pdl *= 2;
  wxlsx2D($pdl, 'double.xlsx');

  my ($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3) = rxlsx1D('input.xlsx', [0, 1, 6]);
  wxlsx1D($pdl1, 'col2.xlsx');
  #or
  $pdl2->wxlsx1D('col2.xlsx');

DESCRIPTION

PDL::IO::XLSX supports reading XLSX files and creating PDL piddle(s) as well as saving PDL data to XLSX file.

FUNCTIONS

By default, PDL::IO::XLSX doesn't import any function. You can import individual functions like this:

 use PDL::IO::XLSX qw(rxlsx2D wxlsx2D);

Or import all available functions:

 use PDL::IO::XLSX ':all';

rxlsx1D

Loads data from XLSX file into 1D piddles (separate for each column).

  my ($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3) = rxlsx1D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle);
  #or
  my ($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3) = rxlsx1D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \@column_ids);
  #or
  my ($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3) = rxlsx1D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \%options);
  #or
  my ($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3) = rxlsx1D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \@column_ids, \%options);

Parameters:

xlsx_filename_or_filehandle

Path to XLSX file to be loaded or a filehandle open for reading.

column_ids

Optional column indices (0-based) defining which columns to load from XLSX file. Default is undef which means to load all columns.

Items supported in options hash:

  • type

    Defines the type of output piddles: double, float, longlong, long, short, byte + special values 'auto' (try to autodetect) and 'datetime' (PDL::DateTime).

    Default: for rxlsx1D - 'auto'; for rxlsx2D - double.

    You can set one type for all columns/piddles:

      my ($a, $b, $c) = rxlsx1D($xlsx, {type => double});

    or separately for each column/piddle:

      my ($a, $b, $c) = rxlsx1D($xlsx, {type => [long, double, double]});

    Special datetime handling:

      my ($a, $b, $c) = rxlsx1D($xlsx, {type => [long, 'datetime', double]});
      # piddle $b will be an instance of PDL::DateTime
  • reshape_inc

    As we do not try to load the whole XLSX file into memory at once, we also do not know at the beginning how many rows there will be. Therefore we do not know how big piddle to allocate, we have to incrementally (re)allocated the piddle by increments defined by this parameter. Default value is 80000.

    If you know how many rows there will be you can improve performance by setting this parameter to expected row count.

  • empty2bad

    Values 0 (default) or 1 - convert empty cells to BAD values (there is a performance cost when turned on). If not enabled the empty values are silently converted into 0.

  • text2bad

    Values 0 (default) or 1 - convert values that don't pass looks_like_number check to BAD values (there is a significant performance cost when turned on). If not enabled these non-numerical values are silently converted into 0.

  • header

    Values 0 or N (positive integer) - consider the first N rows as headers and skip them.

    NOTE: header values (if any) are considered to be column names and are stored in loaded piddles in $pdl->hdr->{col_name}

    NOTE: rxlsx1D accepts a special header value 'auto' which skips rows (from beginning) that have in all columns non-numeric values.

    Default: for rxlsx1D - 'auto'; for rxlsx2D - 0.

  • sheet_name

    The name of xlsx sheet that will be read (default is the first sheet).

  • debug

    Values 0 (default) or 1 - turn on/off debug messages

rxlsx2D

Loads data from XLSX file into 2D piddle.

  my $pdl = rxlsx2D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle);
  #or
  my $pdl = rxlsx2D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \@column_ids);
  #or
  my $pdl = rxlsx2D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \%options);
  #or
  my $pdl = rxlsx2D($xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \@column_ids, \%options);

Parameters and items supported in options hash are the same as by "rxlsx1D".

wxlsx1D

Saves data from one or more 1D piddles to XLSX file.

  wxlsx1D($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3, $xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \%options);
  #or
  wxlsx1D($pdl1, $pdl2, $pdl3, $xlsx_filename_or_filehandle);
  #or
  wxlsx1D($pdl1, $pdl2);

  # but also as a piddle method
  $pdl1D->wxlsx1D("file.xlsx");

Parameters:

piddles

One or more 1D piddles. All has to be 1D but may have different count of elements.

xlsx_filename_or_filehandle

Path to XLSX file to write to or a filehandle open for writing.

Items supported in options hash:

  • header

    Arrayref with values that will be printed as the first XLSX row. Or 'auto' value which means that column names are taken from $pdl->hdr->{col_name}.

    Default: for wxlsx1D - 'auto'; for wxlsx2D - undef.

  • bad2empty

    Values 0 or 1 (default) - convert BAD values into empty strings (there is a performance cost when turned on).

  • sheet_name

    The name of created sheet inside xlsx (default is 'Sheet1').

  • debug

    Values 0 (default) or 1 - turn on/off debug messages

wxlsx2D

Saves data from one 2D piddle to XLSX file.

  wxlsx2D($pdl, $xlsx_filename_or_filehandle, \%options);
  #or
  wxlsx2D($pdl, $xlsx_filename_or_filehandle);
  #or
  wxlsx2D($pdl);

  # but also as a piddle method
  $pdl->wxlsx2D("file.xlsx");

Parameters and items supported in options hash are the same as by "wxlsx1D".
