Echoing some of the above ...

If Excel is ultimately what you want to use to format your data, then you can (and should ...) use Excel to retrieve that data, too.

If that does not work out, then consider the hybrid approach of using Perl to generate an XML file.   (Use any one of several XML-manipulation CPAN packages ...)   Then, open a spreadsheet which specifies that file as an external data-source.   Now, you can use Excel to specify all of the graphing, any secondary calculations, and so forth.   You can change anything about the Excel spreadsheet within that product.   You can also create any number of spreadsheets which draw from the same data-source.   The only thing your program has to be able to do is to produce that data in the format that you have chosen.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.

    [GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
    [GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
    [Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
    [GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
    [Corion]: And so far I like signatures and nobody has yet come up to me and screamed at me for implementing a source filter to handle them even on early Perl versions ;)
