Spreadsheet::Read is a Perl module that tries to transparently read arbitrary
spreadsheet files and return its content in a universal manner independent of
the parsing module that does the actual spreadsheet scanning.
For Microsoft Excel, this module uses Spreadsheet::XLSX (for newer files; see
the libspreadsheet-xlsx-perl package) or Spreadsheet::ParseExcel (available
in libspreadsheet-parseexcel-perl)
For Comma-Separated Value (CSV) files, this module uses Text::CSV (either the
pure perl version in libtext-csv-perl, or, if available, the XS-accelerated
version packaged as libtext-csv-xs-perl).
For SquirrelCalc, there is a very simplistic built-in parser.
