./textproc/freexl, Library to extract valid data from an Excel spreadsheet

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0.6, Package name: freexl-1.0.6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

FreeXL is an open source library to extract valid data from within an Excel
(.xls) spreadsheet. FreeXL design goals:
* to be simple and lightweight
* to be stable, robust and efficient
* to be easily and universally portable
* completely ignoring any GUI-related oddity
Note that the final goal means that FreeXL ignores at all fonts, sizes and
alignments, and most formats. It ignores Pivot Table, Charts, Formulas, Visual
Basic macros and so on. FreeXL is structurally simple and quite light-weight
(typically 40-80K of object code, stripped).
