Spreadsheet::Read - Meta-Wrapper for reading spreadsheet data
use Spreadsheet::Read; my $ref = ReadData ("file.xls");
Spreadsheet::Read offers a uniformed wrapper to Spreadsheet::ParseExcel and Spreadheet::ReadSXC to give the end-user a single point of view to various types of spreadsheets and deal with these in a transparent way.
For more thorough documentation please refer to the perl documentation in the module in pod format, or
$ man Spreadsheet::Read
$ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test $ make install
make test warns you in the xls tests, read the message and apply the generated patch. Spreadsheet::ParseExcel has a small bug in the parsing of the default format regarding UTF-8.
This module requires perl-5.8.1 or newer. It might still work under perl-5.8.0 or perl-5.6.x, but only if Encode is also available. The code might need some minor changes.
Recent changes can be (re)viewed in the public GIT repository at https://github.com/Tux/Spreadsheet-Read

Installing this module will optionally (default is yes) also install some useful tools that use Spreadsheet::Read. At least two are know to cause a possible name clash:
* xls2csv also exists as https://metacpan.org/release/KEN/xls2csv-1.06 Mine existed before that script, and this version dates from 2005 * ssdiff also exists in the gnumeric package with similar functionality
* Make tests for examples/xlscat * Support Parsers native module options * Check if Tk is installed before asking if ss2tk is wanted * Test diagnostics output * Make clip skip empty sheets * Support Data::XLSX::Parser ?
