I think the problem with shortpath is that the module - for me quite mysteriously - sometimes does provide a short path, sometime no. Moving around the same file (or directory structure), the module may start to provide the shortpath (otherwise it returns the original path). As far as I understood, this must depend on some quite wired Windows stuff. When a shortpath is provided, Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX works smoothly. However, it is unsatisfying if it doesn't work consistently.

If my path is


The above code selects the path okay, and displays it fine in the UI (at least with the latest Tk). Passing this path to Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX does NOT work. Shouldn't Perl and Tk resolve this internally (no sure about the layer to the OS)? If a shortpath is returned

then is okay. If it is not return, I simply get again
which of course doesn't work.

Can you elaborate more the idea to pass a file handle? Because, if the problem is not being able - in some circumstances - to get the shortpath, I guess I cannot have a filehandle too to pass, am I a wrong?

I also tried to eliminate the Tk OpenFile and directly pass the path inside the script with:

use utf8;
my $workbook = $parser->parse('C:/Users/DE/Desktop/号召力打了/Ршзефф.xlsx');

This doesn't work too.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
