Re: A simple read of XLSX into Perl
in thread A simple read of XLSX into Perl
Once you have installed Spreadsheet::XLSX, you might consider using Spreadsheet::Read which tries to offer a unified interface to most known spreadsheets.
Also note that it is (very) likely that the XLSX format will get a new parser from the author of Spreadsheet::ParseExcel.
Any interested parties can try out (and contribute to) the code for the new XLSX parsing library which is still in a sort of alpha state, but does 'work'.
