Current State: Needs Developer
Released In: n/a
Target Release: n/a
Its impossible to export unicode characters to xls, but Spreadsheet::WriteExcel can do it (http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=849954
). Same problem is reported in twiki (http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/Item6997
I patched Export.pm from package ExcelImportExportPlugin
. How can I upload patched file to maintainer?

This plugin has changed to "Feel free to modify". You no longer have to feed changes through the maintainer. Also to simplify contributions, we've moved Foswiki to github, and this extension can be forked there.
So I'd encourage you to Fork the extension
and submit your changes there if you can. Otherwise you can attach a patch to this topic. As the plugin no longer has an active maintainer, any help getting the outstanding issues fixed would be a great help!

I attached my modified Export.pm. It will be better to get encoding from LocalSite
.cfg, because I need only a quick patch on utf8 website.

Right, this patch is hardcoded to utf-8. We'll have to have someone more familiar with utf-8 than me make this usable for non-utf8 sites as well. Thanks for the patch. it gives us a good idea what to modify.
