What Linux distro (version) are you using?

I'm not familiar with the package you mentioned, but I'm wondering why not use [0pen|Libre]Office?

Casualzone , did you bother to check the link i posted ?

It lists 4 different methods to install Spreadsheet::WriteExcel, including 2 for active perl .

whenever i type ppm, it will pop up a GUI. how could i use command base for Method 3 & 4

If you run ppm without any parameters on the command line, it should give you a command prompt of it's own , not a gui .

Code:

C:\> ppm
should give you something like this on screen :

PPM>

Then you can use the commands listed in method 3 .

If ppm without paramaters gives you a gui instead of the interactive commandline prompt, you may have to start it with a special parameter to get the prompt.
Check the documentation for ppm on your system, it should have details about how to start ppm with the command prompt.
