What did we achieve

Background information

Spreadsheet Excel Writer

This package has a lot of hard to fix bugs, and is somewhat aged.

Our options are:

  • a complete rewrite from scratch with PHP 5
  • incremental attempts to port the newer changes across from perl
  • write oodles of test cases and see which of the above two scares us less at the end of it

See Spreadsheet Excel Writer for a suggestion on how to write cross language tests.
