I chose other. Although some of the other choices are good from time to time, the best solution when it isn't "working" is to see what it actually is doing

Comparing what it should be doing with what it is doing usually solves the problem. Though it often has the delightful side-effect of finding a better way to do it.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —

    [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?
    [thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
