i'm looking at libole2 as a portable method of reading excel files.  it seems
this project has been taken over by the gunmeric guys so i expect it'll be
maintained.  has anyone out there opted to use this via ruby dl in any way for
some project? any opinions on using this vs. some other method of reading
excel files.

thanks.

ps.  for those of you who don't know me on the list : i know alot about *nix
but almost nothing about windoze ;-)
