Another Python library to read (older version) Excel files. Apparently required by pandas before it even looks at an xml file type...

    1) If you download the tarball from GitHub, then xlrd/examples/namesdemo.xls is included.
    2) The homepage as listed does not resolve. It seems to need a leading www in the domain.

    Oh, and this package already exists in the 10.5-10.9 distributions (but at an older version). Have you contacted the listed maintainer?

    Wasn't aware that this was still open, but I have updated now to 0.9.4 and added a python3.5 version.
    The example file is now included with the DocFiles.

      The attached file is for 0.9.3 and still lists python32 and python33, both of which are unavailable in 10.9 and above.
