in reply to Better Days?

I would chime in that I believe, and have always believed, that PerlMonks is perhaps the best professional-services web site that I have ever experienced.   Even the more remarkable because it appears to be mostly self-regulating.

This site, of course, experiences the social dynamics, the trials and the tribulations, that are common to every forum.   But, every single day, many someones come here and almost every one of them is immediately and gladly helped.   The quality of threads even from many years ago, to the extent that their technical content has remained technically relevant, continues to enable them to serve as an ongoing information resource of the highest order.   That is the site’s mission, and that mission is fulfilled.

Present company perhaps not included, I think that the people who participate here have much to be proud of, and I am grateful to them all without exception.

“Better days?”   That would be:   today.

[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! :-)
