xls2csv input-file [-l] [-v] [-e encoding] [-t sheet] [-q quote char] [-f field separator]
xls2csv converts binary Excel files (.xls) to comma-separated values (CSV), sending the plain-text output to standard out.
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.
List sheets contained in the file but do not output their contents.
- -t sheet
Only process the named sheet.
- -e encoding
The iconv output encoding (default "UTF-8")
- -q quote char
The character used to quote strings (default '"')
- -f field separator
The character used to separate strings (default ';')
The conversion tool has not been tested on big-endian machines.
