Appy16 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am new to Perl and i've been assigned a project in which i have to copy or merge multiple worksheets to a new workbook. Someone asked me to use win32::OLE but i can't use that because i am working on a unix system (OS X to be precise.) i would be thankful if someone could help me out.

    You can use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel to read .xls files and Spreadsheet::WriteExcel to create your merged file.

    You may need to take care of formatting and the like. If your data set is large you may need to look at Spreadsheet::WriteExcel::Big.
