I'm sure a number of the Perl experts have viewed your question by now, but none have a ready answer. In reading your question again, I'm not even sure I know what you're asking. The Spreadsheet::WriteExcel module is still rather limited in its capabilities, from what I understand. I've never used it myself and all I could do is direct you to the built-in documentation:


That will give you a list of the methods available and searching around for other related modules may begin to yield answers to your question.

My question is very simple.

Just want to have a reference guide which tells me what are the objects i can use in Perl. And for each object, i have a guide to see their functions, properties i can use and how to use them.
