The IO::File module is part of the IO distribution, which is maintained
on CPAN. (http://search.cpan.org/~gbarr/IO-1.25/). You can examine any
bugs reported at that distribution's bug queue,
IO::File is also part of the Perl 5 core distribution. If you are using
either Perl 5.8.9 or any version of Perl 5.10, 5.12, 5.14 or 5.16, then
you should have IO::File 1.14 or later available. (You can see this by
saying 'corelist -a IO::File' at the command-line.)
Excel::Writer::XLSX is maintained on CPAN. When I examine its
I note that it requires File::Temp v0.19. This module is also included
in the Perl 5 core distribution and any version of Perl 5.10 or greater
has at least File::Temp 0.19.
Since modules that travel with the Perl 5 core distribution are heavily
tested and used in production, they're usually quite reliable. Problems
are possible, but if you encounter problems with Excel::Writer::XLSX,
you should probably follow the author's instructions and first consult
the distro's mailing list:
Thank you very much.
