in reply to iTunes lacking on CPAN...

Another idea would be to save yourself quite some work by using a service like last.fm.

    It looks like http://last.fm has an XML/RSS feed that I can use (along with some HTML they provide that links to a .gif image with a list of recently played tracks. Doesn't update too fast though it looks like...) to show the most recent tracks...perhaps i could use XML::Twig for this...

    The XML is a LOT simpler for this site:

    Or, I could even parse the even simpler CSV file:

    1163436933,Staind Everything Changes 1163436668,The Smashing Pumpkins 1979 1163436360,Yellowcard Gifts and Curses 1163435904,Rascal Flatts What Hurts The Most

    meh.

    Looks like that could work great crenz. ++ to you :-). I still think it would be nice to have a module do this so people wouldn't have to sign up for a service to do it for me...that way they could have a perl app or C program that could run in the background and update automatically...

    meh.

[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 ?
[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?
