You are obviously using a rather old version of (system)perl: 5.8.8. You now have the following options (maybe even more, but to start with):

  1. Install the system package for Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX, on which I think the odds are very low that the system ever packaged that for your OS.
  2. Install using the toolset:
    • Using cpan
      $ sudo cpan Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX
    • Using cpanm:
      $ curl -L https://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus $ cpanm -S https://cpan.metacpan.org/authors/id/D/DO/DOY/Spreadsheet-P +arseXLSX-0.27.tar.gz

It is up to you to find if you want it installed outside of the default perl tree and what options the tools have to do so. The monestary is full of tips on how to use perl modules without the use of sudo.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
