sale has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I need to upgrade(?) a utility I have written long ago that parses, processes and outputs xls files, so it can parse xlsx files. This runs on Windows and Activestate perl 5.8.9 The problem is there seems to be no such module from activestate. I wonder how people have dealt with this issue
