Version 0.32 of Spreadsheet::WriteExcel was released on May 18th with new features to allow setup of the printed page. Features such as page orientation, paper type, headers and footers. These had been the most requested features for a long time but I had managed to get bogged down in the implementation of Excel's formulas and functions. The formula module burned me out a little and it took a long time to add the relatively simpler page set-up options. In order to get it finished I had to stop reading c.l.p.m and PerlMonks and I had to stop playing Golf.

I also had to stop reading module related email at the beginning of my working night when a stray problem might divert me from coding. This meant that my end of the night email responses were pithier but it did increase my productivity.


I also released Acme::Inline::PERL at Brian Ingerson's request.

Inline::PERL: Bring the power of PERL programming to your Perl programs. ;-)

Life (and how to live it)

Two weeks holidays in Italy from tomorrow. Non vedo l'ora.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
