NAME

Spreadsheet::Read - Meta-Wrapper for reading spreadsheet data

SYNOPSIS

  use Spreadsheet::Read;
  my $ref = ReadData ("file.xls");

DESCRIPTION

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

after installation.

INSTALLATION

  $ perl Makefile.PL
  $ make
  $ make test
  $ make install

If the 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-5.6.x or newer.
