You can find more information on the speaker's site:


Documenting spreadsheets presents unusual problems. The talk will identify why spreadsheet documentation is generally so poor and how this can be changed. In under 400 lines of Perl, a tool has been written to extract POD from within spreadsheets. The talk will describe why this approach was chosen and what difficulties - in Excel, Perl and POD - were encountered and how they were overcome by a beginner. The talk will not try to teach POD.
