    Oh, I already wrote code to handle the sharing of entities between Parrot-hosted languages and Perl 5 (the hard part was walking between the two very different memory management strategies of garbage collection and reference counting). I'm sure that code's been lost to one of the annual purges, however. I have no desire to rewrite working code for the sake of P6's current implementation fad—but good luck doing that in a cross-platform way in NQP, or handling internal encoding and decoding in an efficient way, or dealing with system calls, or managing library paths, for example.

[thezip]: G'day all. Apparently Strawberry Perl has issues with deploying Spreadsheet::XLSX for Perl 5.24.1. I need this module to maintain compatability with an existing script. I'm new to Strawberry -- is there a safe way to manually deploy this?
[MidLifeXis]: Where is it hanging up?
[MidLifeXis]: ISTR having a couple of issue based on undeclared dependencies around the time I was looking at that module on my last project, but cannot say if that was the module that I had the dependency issues with.
[MidLifeXis]: (5.22 at that time)
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, I know, really helpful :-)
[Corion]: If all else fails, Spreadsheet::XLSX should be "installable" by manually copying the files, provided that the prerequisites are met
[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
[thezip]: Okay Corion, that's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
[Corion]: Oh, a test failure... Just force-install it then? --force and potentially --notest to skip the tests alltogether ?
