( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm planning to upgrade my OS to a 64 bit version of Losedows to take full advantage of my hardware. Regular readers of my posts will know that I do a lot of stuff on Excel, and I have been unable to find Win64::OLE or anything that looks like it. Does this mean that I should use a 32 bit Perl version? Stick with a 32 bit OS? Any advice in this area would be appreciated before I do something irretrievable. I'm going to buy a new HDD today, so I'll be able to install to that & retain all my 32 bit stuff on my existing HDD, but the time will come when I will want to combine everything and I'm nervous.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
