in thread Perl 5.8.? and ParseExcel

-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.

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

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

      ...I was thinking that myself.

      Once again Thanks,
