NAME
       xls2csv - convert binary	Excel (.xls) files to CSV

SYNOPSIS
       xls2csv	input-file  [-l] [-v] [-e encoding] [-t	sheet] [-q quote char]
       [-f field separator]

DESCRIPTION
       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 be-
       low.

OPTIONS
       -l     List sheets contained in the file	but do not output  their  con-
	      tents.

       -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 ';')
