Next, I'm not sure

my $excel = Spreadsheet::XLSX -> new ('test.xlsx');

is correct.

It's not a common way of laying out code, but adding arbitrary whitespace between tokens in Perl is rarely disallowed. Whitespace is only really needed between tokens if they'd look like another token if the whitespace was missing.

For example, given:

use 5.010; my @foo = split /\|/, q {foo|bar|bar}; foreach my $x (@foo) { say $x; }

... there are only actually two pieces of required whitespace: between "use" and "5.010", and between "foreach" and "my". The code runs perfectly well if you strip out the rest of the whitespace:

use 5.010;my@foo=split/\|/,q{foo|bar|bar};foreach my$x(@foo){say$x}

... though most people would consider the former to be more readable.
