This function is not exported.
Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):
fmt => bool
Run Unix fmt over the txt output.
input_file* => filename
Path to input file.
libreoffice_path => filename
output_file => filename
Path to output file.
If not specified, will output to stdout.
overwrite => bool
return_output_file => bool
Return the path of output file instead.
This is useful when you do not specify an output file but do not want to show the converted document to stdout, but instead want to get the path to a temporary output file.
Returns an enveloped result (an array).
First element ($status_code) is an integer containing HTTP-like status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element ($reason) is a string containing error message, or something like "OK" if status is 200. Third element ($payload) is the actual result, but usually not present when enveloped result is an error response ($status_code is not 2xx). Fourth element (%result_meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information, much like how HTTP response headers provide additional metadata.
Return value: (any)
To convert a spreadsheet to CSV, you can use xls2csv from Spreadsheet::Read.
