someone could post an example file which gretl can't open.
Yep I also just tried a "more realistic" file myself and didn't get any
problems -- so maybe I will have to close my own feature request as
invalid! Maybe you should ask on the user list for examples.
As for openoffice, ODF support would be nice. Besides, it's a
well-documented xml format. However, this is the theory; in theory,
there's no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there
is. The gnumeric C file which contains the algorithm for reading odf
spreadsheets is a 115K gorilla. True, we don't need most of the stuff
they do (charts, styles and so on), but even ripping what we need from
their implementation would be quite a big task.
There must be some external library freely available, no?
