The output in the file ... is 48,265 bytes long! ... It works when "GetText()" is used instead of "Get()"

The Windows clipboard allows storing multiple formats of the same data in the same clipboard entry. When you copy from Excel, the clipboard both has a native-Excel format (your 48k), which includes all the cell information, formatting, etc; and has a plaintext; and maybe has other formats as well.

Win32::Clipboard has the EnumFormats() to list the formats currently in the clipboard, and GetFormatName() to give you more info for "custom" formats. By switching to GetText() , you were forcing it to give you the CF_TEXT version instead of the native Excel format.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
