Jukka Zitting commented on TIKA-105:
------------------------------------

Note that the class had a single debug line referring to an ExcelUtils class that I don't
have. For now I just commented that line out.

> Tika's existing ExcelParser implementation uses POI's HSSFWorkbook to extract text from
an Excel file. POI also provides an alternative "Event API"[1] for processing Excel files
- the advantage being that it has a much smaller memory footprint, but at the cost of a slightly
more complex API.
> I have written an alternative excel parser implementation based on the Event API - if
its of interest to the Tika project I'll write a test case for it.
