- Reading Excel files using PHP

Could someone pls give me pointers (or examples) on how to use PHP
(installed on a linux) to read & write MS Excel spreadsheets. So far
I've been converting a spreadsheet to text (as tab separated values)
and processing the text file. I'm wondering if I can avoid this step
and process the .xls file directly.
I found a thread in this group - related to this topic - but it says,
MS excel needs to be installed on target machine to use PHP's COM. I
assume he's talking about PHP running on windows target machine. How
can I use a similar approach on linux machine?
Any help is appreciated.
