=head1 NAME Spreadsheet::Read - Meta-Wrapper for reading spreadsheet data =head1 SYNOPSIS use Spreadsheet::Read; my $ref = ReadData ("file.xls"); =head1 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. =head1 INSTALLATION $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test $ make install If the C<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 Feel free to clone your own copy: $ git clone https://github.com/Tux/Spreadsheet-Read Spreadsheet-Read or get it as a tgz: $ wget --output-document=Spreadsheet-Read-git.tgz \ 'https://github.com/Tux/Spreadsheet-Read/archive/master.tar.gz' =head1 TOOLS 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 =head1 TODO * 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 ? =head1 AUTHOR H.Merijn Brand, <email@example.com> =head1 COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE Copyright (C) 2005-2018 H.Merijn Brand This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself. =cut
