Spreadsheet::ConvertAA - Perl extension for Converting Spreadsheet column name to/from decimal
use Spreadsheet::ConvertAA ; my $baseAA = ToAA(475255) ; my $base10 = FromAA('AAAZ') ;
This module allows you to convert from Spreadsheet column notation ('A', 'AZ', 'BC') to decimal and back.
The Spreadsheet column notation is base 26 _without_ zero. 'A' is 1 and 'AA' is 27. I named the base 'AA' because I found no better name.
Spreadsheet::ConvertAA 'confess' on invalid input.
As of version 0.04, I have replaced the implementation of ToAA and FromAA with code from Spreadsheet::Read written by H.Merijn Brand. The new code is cleaner. The new ToAA is 50% faster and the new FromAA is only slightly slower.
The new code doesn't have the limitation ConvertAA had previously.
