RFE: support for perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel

RFE - support for perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel
Spreadsheet::ParseExcel is a perl module that requires modification to
Unicode::Map in order to fully function.
At a minimum, the following lines need to be added to Unicode/Map/REGISTRY:
map: (which you copied directry)/CP932Excel.map
# Don't remove this line
It would not be appropriate for perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel to modify that file
itself, since it does not own it.
Additionally, there is the issue of the CP932Excel.map file
perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel is a noarch package, but the correct place for the
map file is in an arch dependent directory (ie
There are two options - I can install the file as part of
perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel and make the package arch dependent, or the file can
be added to the Unicode::Map package.
I would prefer the latter, but would be willing to do the former.
The README file describing this can be viewed at
The needed map file is at
I went ahead and had perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel install the map file.
So all that needs to be done for the proper japanese support is the modification
to the Unicode/Map/REGISTRY file as described.
Done for FC6. Sorry for this extra-lenghty reply, but I packaged
perl-Unicode-Map only as a dependency. If you're interested in this package,
please feel free to take it over.
