1) Install Spreadsheet::WriteExcel. How to do this depends on your distribution -- hopefully your distro has a package for it. It ought to, since it's a quite popular extension.

2) Paste this into


use strict;
use warnings;
use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel;

my ($infile, $line, $worksheet, @cols, $row, $col);
my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new('output.xls');

while($infile = shift)

        $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet($infile); # Add a worksheet
        open(FIN, "<$infile") || die("Couldn't open $infile"); # open csv

        while(!eof(FIN)) {
                @cols=split(/,/, $line);

                for($col=0; $col <= $#cols; $col++) {
                        $worksheet->write($row, $col, $cols[$col]);


3) Set executable like chmod +x ./
4) Run it like ./ file1.csv file2.csv file3.csv and watch it generate the file output.xls from that data.

Well, does it work or not? If the program runs without complaining that it can't find Spreadsheet::WriteExcel, that's a pretty good indication that you have it!

You might have to install it with CPAN, by logging into root, running 'cpan', answering the questions, then doing install Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; inside CPAN.
