FreeXL is a simple library intended for extracting the contents and some metadata from Microsoft Excel (.xls) format files.

It makes no attempt to extract GUI-related formatting or formulas / charts / etc


Documentation is generated using Doxygen. You can run "doxygen" in the top level directory to generate HTML and LaTeX documentation (in the html/ and latex/ directories respectively). You can generate a PDF format manual if you go into the latex/ directory and type "make". The output should be a file called refman.pdf. The HTML documentation is normally more useful.

Coverage testing

FreeXL has coverage testing support. You need to have gcov and lcov installed.

Process: 1. Use --enable-gcov=yes with configure script 2. Clean and rebuild. 3. make coverage-init 4. make check (or whatever other tests you want to check coverage for) 5. make coverage 6. check summary on command line output. 7. review detailed coverage results in covresults/index.html
