Spreadsheet::WriteExcel .21 ported!

[ #9175 ]
After having so much trouble tracking down some of the bugs, I decided to fall back to version .21. I finally got it working yesterday. The remaining 12 bytes that I mentioned in my last post turned out to be a silent syntax mistake (something I'm complaining about on the mailing list now).

Debugging this puppy was a PITA. I literally ran Perl and Ruby sample code side by side in their own debuggers and stepped into every method hunting for mistakes, comparing values as I went (mostly the datasize). Paid off though - I got 'em. I also learned a few things to avoid in the future. :)

Anyway, it seems to work. I need to do some testing at home - I still don't have a Windows machine here that's connected so I'll have to wait a bit. Now I just need to upload the files to CVS, whip together a tar file and make an announcement.

Next stop: formats. Oh, and by the way - Thanks John!!!
