Subject poi hssf-serializer built in limitation
Date Wed, 31 May 2006 12:10:42 GMT
Hi there,

I've ran accross a hard-coded limit in our ms-excel-format serizalizer
(and it looks like I'm the second one :-) )

$ find -name |xargs cat -n |head -65|tail
$ find -name |xargs cat -n |head -102|tail -16

It causes style-formatting-regions to be ignored if they span more then
2000 cells.

Apart from the (to me quite dense) remarks in the code there is little
to be found about what are the actual motives for this, or how we could
assess if the limitations still stand in todays world or not.

In fact, in terms of code-evolution I could only find this limit
appeared to be in the original commit already.

Does anybody remember anything about this?
Does anybody have an idea about verifying if the limitation could be

kind regards,
