Yet another port

[ #7173 ]
I managed to get a working Ruby port of John McNamara's Spreadsheet::WriteExcel module going today. Sweet!

Well, not totally sweet. It's a port of version .11, not the latest and greatest (.37 at the moment). I did this on the advice of John himself, because it was much easier and a good place to start understanding *how things work*.

So, it works, but you can't do any formatting of any kind and you can only have 1 worksheet. But, that's what vesion 0.0.2 is for, right? :)

Oh, and before I forget: Thanks John!!!

    • Give it a shot! I can't remember if you already know this, but if you want a book to start with, I highly recommend Programming Ruby, which you can also view online here []

      I think you'll like it.
