in thread Perl 5.8.? and ParseExcel

Perl's implementation of unicode changed quite a lot between 5.6.x and 5.8.x. It is, so I read, very much improved in 5.8.x but with that improvement came the need for a few non-backwards compatible changes and some extra warnings it seems. I've yet done precious little with it.

    -Thanks for the replies BrowserUk. Right now I put in a hack until I can figure out or find an answer,

    { local *STDERR; open(STDERR, '>/dev/null'); $oBook = $oExcel->Parse($disclaimer) || die "Unable to parse $ +disclaimer"; }

    ..not the right solution, but it works for now.

    Thanks Again, sth

      Pragmatic! You could also do:

      { local $SIG{ __WARN__ } = sub{}; $oBook = $oExcel->Parse($disclaimer) || die "Unable to parse $disclaimer"; }

      ps. Dropping a line to the module owner might be good too.

        ..thanks, I like this better. :-)

        ...I was thinking that myself.

        Once again Thanks,
