This is a quickened release for Jim Ford, as he reads his spreadsheets
with Perl and Spreadsheet::Read, and wanted color support. Enjoy!

        Spreadsheet::Read $,1x2(B Read the data from a spreadsheet

         use Spreadsheet::Read;
         my $ref = ReadData ("test.csv", sep => ";");
         my $ref = ReadData ("test.sxc");
         my $ref = ReadData ("test.ods");
         my $ref = ReadData ("test.xls");

         my $a3 = $ref$,1rp(B>[1], "\n"; # content of field A3 of sheet 1

        Spreadsheet::Read tries to transparantly read *any* spreadsheet and
        return its content in a universal manner independent of the parsing
        module that does the actual spreadsheet scanning.
