I’m looking for someone to take over the lead role for the “spreadsheet”
package. I just don’t have the vested interest in this library that I
once had, and so I figure it’s time to turn it over to someone who can
devote their full attention to it.
That would mean taking over both the current project (on SourceForge)
and the new project (on RubyForge).
The SourceForge project is what you see on the RAA currently. It’s the
old Excel 95 format (a port of Spreadsheet::Excel 0.x).
The RubyForge project is an incomplete version of the Excel 97 format (a
port of Spreadsheet::Excel 2.x). I’ve got most everything in the CVS
repository but the output isn’t quite right - some bytes are off
If you’re interested please email me offline at djberg96 at gmail dot
Please, only people who have an actual need for this library, along
with a fair amount of free time, should consider taking over this
project. It’s a lot work, and there’s lots to be done - formula
support, for example. I would also say that the ability to read Perl
code is a must as well.
On a side note, I’ve found that John McNamara (the author of the Perl
module I ported) is quite friendly and happy to answer any questions you
