Wow, that's a great response time!

Perhaps obvious but may wish to support sep=, as well, for documents going the other way (and it's nice symmetry). Excel recognizes at least these two but not sure if it'll take anything else. (I guess it'd be a bit silly to make it too general.)

    The chosen implementation makes sep=XXX valid as long as XXX adheres to the current restrictions for sep_char. This implies IIRC a maximum length of 16 bytes, UTF-8 allowed.

    I have entered the long procedure for testing. Just keep a keen eye on your favorite CPAN mirror.

    For additional pleasure, the new version will have a say method too, so you don't need two object side by side: you can now use the same object for both reading and writing.


    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
