Spreadsheet::WriteExcel accepts a valid filehandle as an argument to new() as of version 0.31. The best way to achieve what you want is via a tied scalar and the IO::Scalar module which is part of the IO::Stringy distribution. For example:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; use IO::Scalar; # Write an Excel file to a string via IO::Scalar. # Refer to the IO::Scalar documentation for further details. # my $a; tie *XLS, 'IO::Scalar', \$a; # Create a spreadsheet and write something to it. # my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new(\*XLS); my $worksheet = $workbook->addworksheet(); $worksheet->write(0, 0, "Hi Excel!"); $workbook->close(); # This is required # The Excel file is now in $a. As a demonstration, print it to a f +ile. # open TMP, "> test.xls"; binmode(TMP); print TMP $a;
There are further examples of using filehandles with Spreadsheet::WriteExcel in the filehandle.pl program that is in the examples directory of the distribution.
