in thread Religion in the Monastery.

I've done my few years in programming, still no belief in gods. However, I do now believe in Pure Evil. It is the least-complex explanation I can think of for that class of user that ALWAYS asks the same questions, NEVER bothers to read the manual, and INSISTS on me dropping everything to help them with exactly the same problem I helped them with last week.

[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 ?
[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
