I have the following question.
I have an excel with very long urls.(length>255)
When i use the normal write function it does not work.
This is a known issue as explained in http://search.cpan.org/~jmcnamara/Excel-Writer-XLSX-0.69/lib/Excel/Writer/XLSX.pm#LIMITATIONS
So i have to resort to the write_string function.
The problem is that the url is html encoded. For example & is converted into &.
is converted into
When i read the url back from excel with another program i have to decode the url which is an ugly workaround.
Is there a better way to handle this problem?
