Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce the first release of xlutils. This is a small 
collection of utilities that make use of both xlrd and xlwt to process 
Microsoft Excel files.

The current utilities included are:

   Tools for finding how much of an Excel file contains useful data.

   A mini framework for splitting and filtering Excel files into new
   Excel files.

To find out more, please read here:


In case you're not aware, xlrd and xlwt are two excellent pure-python 
libraries for reading and writing Excel files. They run on any platform 
and, likely, any implementation of Python without the need for horrific 
things like binding to Excel via COM and so needing a Windows machine.

If you use any of xlrd, xlwt or xlutils, the following google group will 
be of use:


Hope some of this is of interest, I'd love to hear from anyone who ends 
up using it!
