-======================================================================
-NAME
-
- Spreadsheet::WriteExcel - Write formatted text and numbers to a
- cross-platform Excel binary file.
-
-======================================================================
-REQUIREMENTS
-
- This module requires Perl 5.005 (or later)
- Parse::RecDescent
- http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=Parse-RecDescent
- File::Temp
- http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=File-Temp
-
-
-======================================================================
-INSTALLATION
-
- Method 1, standard install with make
- ====================================
- Download the zipped tar file from one of the following:
- http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=Spreadsheet-WriteExcel
- http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/mod_perl/cpan-search?idinfo=154
- ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/authors/id/J/JM/JMCNAMARA/
-
- Unzip the module as follows or use winzip:
-
- tar -zxvf Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-2.xx.tar.gz
-
- The module can be installed using the standard Perl procedure:
-
- perl Makefile.PL
- make
- make test
- make install # You may need to be root
- make clean # or make realclean
-
- Windows users without a working "make" can get nmake from:
-
- ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/nmake15.exe
-
-
- Method 2, CPAN.pm install
- =========================
- If you have CPAN.pm configured you can install the module as
- follows:
-
- perl -MCPAN -e "install 'Spreadsheet::WriteExcel'"
-
-
- Method 3, ActivePerl ppm
- ========================
- ActivePerl users can use PPM as follows:
-
- C:\> ppm
- PPM> set repository tmp http://homepage.eircom.net/~jmcnamara/perl
- PPM> install Spreadsheet-WriteExcel
- PPM> quit
- C:\>
-
- If this fails try the following:
-
- PPM>install http://homepage.eircom.net/~jmcnamara/perl/Spreadsheet-WriteExcel.ppd
-
- If both of these fail you should ensure that ppm is working
- correctly. Try to install the File::Slurp module as a test:
-
- C:\> ppm
- PPM> install File-Test
- PPM> quit
- C:\>
-
- A failure here will indicate that your ppm isn't configured
- correctly or, more likely, that you are behind a firewall. Have a
- look at the "Using PPM" documentation that comes with
- ActivePerl to see how to resolve these issues.
-
- Method 4, ActivePerl local ppm
- ==============================
- If the previous ppm methods fail you can try a local ppm install
- as follows. Download the following two files (xx is the most
- recent version number):
-
- http://homepage.eircom.net/~jmcnamara/perl/Spreadsheet-WriteExcel.ppd
- http://homepage.eircom.net/~jmcnamara/perl/Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-0.xx-PPM.tar.gz
-
- Copy them to a temp directory. There is no need to un-tar or unzip
- the PPM file.
-
- In the DOS shell change to the temp directory and run ppm:
-
- C:\> cd c:\temp
- C:\Temp> ppm
-
- PPM> install Spreadsheet-WriteExcel.ppd
- Install package 'Spreadsheet-WriteExcel.ppd?' (y/N): y
- Retrieving package 'Spreadsheet-WriteExcel.ppd'...
- Writing C:\perl\site\lib\auto\Spreadsheet\WriteExcel\.packlist
- PPM> quit
- Quit!
-
- The module should now be installed. Note, you will also have to
- install Parse::RecDescent and possibly File::Temp if it isn't
- already installed .
-
-
-======================================================================

- user with Freshmeat http://freshmeat.net/ and subscribing to
- Spreadsheet::WriteExcel at the project page:
