Process ms excel files on linux machine


Hi,

Are there any solutions by which linux-based web server frameworks (like zend or any other) can process data inside microsoft excel spreadsheets (*.xls)?

Hi,

Perl has several modules that can read/write from/to excel files.

Here are some links to give you an idea (you do need an understanding of perl to use these):

Writing Excel spreadsheets with Perl (perlmonks)
Reading and writing Excel files with Perl (opensourcetutorials)

If you find this worth while, feed your search engine with perl excel to get many more references.

Hope this helps.
