I am having a problem with Spreadsheet::ParseExcel and Perl 5.8.?. I get the pack warnings of,
Character in 'C' format wrapped in pack at /5.8.4/Spreadsheet/ParseExcel/FmtDefault.pm line 68
This worked with Perl 5.6.1, but does not work with 5.8.
The spread sheet being parsed has not changed. I've seen this question posted, but I have not found an answer. I realize that the problem is the ascii characters are > 128 and is causing the problem. So my questions are,
- Can I supress the warnings in the calling code?
- Did I miss a solution in my searching?
(my eyes are glazing over at this point)
- Or can I convert the xls file somehow, is there a
parse option I am missing?
