in reply to How some people live without Perl

Yes! My 2 main tools for columnar data-munging are Excel and Perl.

Of course, my ideal tool would be a spreadsheet with embedded Perl used for formulas, formatting (sprintf and other transforms), and as the internal macro language...

    Sounds like it would be simple to write a spreadsheet in Perl/Tk that basically did that.
      Yes, it does sound simple...

      But I don't know enough about Tk. I did start trying to mock something like this up some time ago but I couldn't work out which Tk widget best represented that sort of grid...

    I suppose you could put Perl code into formulas using Excel itself, and then use Spreadsheet::Excel and eval any non-Excel formulas.

    Reinvent a rounder wheel.
