Do I reinvent the wheel?

No. :-)

The set_column() method should allow you to set the format for a column and then have that applied to all data written to the column. However, it doesn't currently work like that and it should really be fixed.

An easy way of adding new methods to the Worksheet class, or to any of the other classes, is to do something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("test.xls"); my $worksheet = $workbook->addworksheet(); $worksheet->write ('A1', "Hello"); $worksheet->uc_write('A2', "Hello"); # New method # # The following will be appended to # Spreadsheet::WriteExcel::Worksheet # package Spreadsheet::WriteExcel::Worksheet; # # uc_write: A worksheet method that does ... # sub uc_write { my $self = shift; $self->write($_[0], uc $_[1]); }

In the example directory of the Spreadsheet::WriteExcel distro the write_many.pl and comments.pl programs use this methodology.

However, this is only suitable for simple or one-off solutions. If you need to do anything more complicated or maintainable it would probably be better to subclass the Worksheet class.

Title:
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.
