This module allows you to get information from Excel file.

This module can handle files of Excel95, 97 and 2000. (and now supports Excel4)

The module will work on the majority of Windows, UNIX and Macintosh platforms.



1) License is listed as Unknown at CPAN and I can not find it in the source.
For that reason, I have set release at 0.1 and am attempting to contact 
upstream author to get a new release with a license included.

2) Full functionallity for Japanese requires manual installation of a file 
marked as %doc and requires modification of a file owned by another package.


The module is capable of some additional functionallity if a Unicode::Map file 
is installed, and the Unicode::Map REGISTRY file is modified.

The location where perl-Unicode-Map puts its .map files looks to be arch 
This is a noarch package, and I would rather not install the .map file into an 
arch dependent location forcing the package to be arch dependent.

Also - I would rather not modify a file of another package.

Assuming the license issue is resolved, I will file an RFE with 
perl-Unicode-Map (and cc the Fedora perl list in the RFE) to see if the 
maintainer of that package is willing to modify that package so that things 
will "just work".


I would like to submit this package because there is a LaTeX macro on CTAN that 
can make use of it, that would be useful for importing data from excel format
