Re: [svg-developers] dynamic svg maps
- You can use Perl, the SVG module, and the Excel-handling modules together to
update your SVG image from Excel. This can be done fairly easily with Perl
and works (at least) on Win32 and Solaris.
These modules and their documentation are available from CPAN, the
Comprehensive Perl Archive Network.
