1) parses XML using regexps 2) doesn't decode html entities: & > ect 3) doesn't keep number formating metadata 4) doesn't handle dates correctly: + returns 01.03.2016 as "Monday, March 01, 2016" + which is wrong, 2016 is a leap year so should be Tuesday 5) breaks with any utf-8 data: returns empty column data 6) possibly others: currently 48 issues against it on CPAN The pod does mention that this is a quick and dirty module to parse .xlsx files - i suggest making the entire module a wrapper around Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX to fix most (if not all) of the current issues and make it much more compatible with Spreadsheet::ParseExcel: use strict; use warnings; use Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX; sub new { return Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX->new->parse( $_[1] ); } 1;
