Hollywood 20th anniversary: XLSX plugin released

On November 4th 2002, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, released Hollywood 1.0 for 68k AmigaOS. Originally advertised as a multimedia authoring solution, nobody would have expected back then that this software would turn into a cross-platform programming language for lots of platforms with dozens of plugins for all kinds of tasks. Now, 20 years later, Hollywood is still going strong, receives regular updates and new plugins, and is used by many people around the globe. All of this would not have been possible without the continued support of many Hollywood enthusiasts in the past 20 years. Only the positive feedback we received right from the start made us continue developing Hollywood into what it is today.

As a little "thank you", we proudly present yet another plugin for Hollywood: XLSX. The XLSX plugin makes it possible to conveniently read and write XLSX documents from Hollywood scripts. It offers a wide variety of functions to set and get cell values, cell types, cell formulas, document/worksheet properties and several other attributes. It also offers an iterator function for a high performance iteration of a large number of cells.
