in thread How Greedy is Greedy: A Regex Question

Actually, i wasn't complaining at all. Rather inquiring as to what it is about the ? that makes the expression non-greedy back when I was still first tackling regexes. That said, I fail to see what .? would accomplish. It would match 0 or 1 non-newline characters, which has nothing to do with the OP. Perhaps you can expand on you thinking?

[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?
