As of version 0.6.0, only Microsoft Excel compatible spreadsheets are supported. Spreadsheet is a combination/complete rewrite of the Spreadsheet::Excel Library by Daniel J. Berger and the ParseExcel Library by Hannes Wyss. Spreadsheet can read, write and modify Spreadsheet Documents. == Notes from Users Alfred: firstname.lastname@example.org: I think it should be noted in the README file that the library doesn't recognize cell formats in Excel created documents, which results in Floats returned for any number. == What's new? * Supported outline (grouping) functions * Significantly improved memory-efficiency when reading large Excel Files * Limited Spreadsheet modification support * Improved handling of String Encodings == Roadmap 0.7.0:: Improved Format support/Styles 0.7.1:: Document Modification: Formats/Styles 0.8.0:: Formula Support 0.8.1:: Document Modification: Formulas 0.9.0:: Write-Support: BIFF5 1.0.0:: Ruby 1.9 Support; Remove backward compatibility code == Dependencies * ruby 1.8 * ruby-ole[http://code.google.com/p/ruby-ole/] == Examples Have a look at the GUIDE[link://files/GUIDE_txt.html]. == Installation Using RubyGems[http://www.rubygems.org]: * sudo gem install spreadsheet If you don't like RubyGems[http://www.rubygems.org], let me know which installation solution you prefer and I'll include it in the future. If you can use 'rake' and 'hoe' library is also installed, you can build a gem package as follows: * rake gem The gem package is built in pkg directory. == Authors Original Code: Spreadsheet::Excel: Copyright (c) 2005 by Daniel J.
