Could you show me some code? I was reading all the MS specifications on excel files (BIFF, XML, etc.), and I figured out that the worst work is to write all the headers, data structures and constants. With all this stuff in my hand, it would be easy to port SpreadSheet::WriteExcel back to Pascal.

I use the freepascal compiler. A unit similar to Spread... would be a useful contribution.

    FYI -- you can download his code from CPAN (see or perl -MCPAN -e 'shell'), without asking for it... it's pretty easy, try it out!
