If M$ somehow decided that Excel 2007 would not change the way unicode is handled in spreadsheets, then this might help you out: xls2tsv uses the old Spreadsheet::ParseExcel, but if the unicode handling hasn't changed, then you'll find a consistent clue about when you need to "decode()" from UTF-16BE into utf8 to get what you want.

Then again, if M$ did decide to change their unicode handling in Excel, you might need to get some sort of hex-dump picture of the character data in the cells of interest. Save a spreadsheet with known non-ascii characters in selected cells, and you should be able to work out what needs to be done.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
