xls2csv - convert binary Excel (.xls) files to CSV

SYNOPSIS

xls2csv input-file [-l] [-v] [-e encoding] [-t sheet] [-q quote char] [-f field separator]

Unless otherwise specified, all sheets in the workbook are processed, and the output values are double-quoted, separated by semicolons, and encoded as UTF-8. This behavior may be customized with the options below.

OPTIONS

-t sheet Only process the named sheet.
-e encoding
The iconv output encoding (default "UTF-8")
-q quote char

-f field separator

BUGS
