in reply to Mastering Regular Expressions

For me personally, I like to have books that treat the subject matter very thoroughly, I'd rather have a lot of information, than too little. Of course, there's never a be-all end-all book of Perl programming. I highly recommend this book, it's really worth the reading if you're looking for some better understanding of regular expressions.

[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?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
