Can anyone suggest some libraries to parse excel 2003 xml files and
the binary version of xls prior to that?
I found github.com/tealeg/xlsx that can handle the newer xlsx.
What are platform requirements?
If your code should only run on Windows, and you may have Excel or
Open/Libre-Office installed on it, you can use go-ole  to have these
suites open and parse the necessary files by talking to them using the
Windows' COM technology. The upside is that the support for parsing
the necessary data format is usually robust in these tools.
The downside is platform dependency and very slow speed of processing.
Alternatively, you might look at wrapping one or the other non-Microsoft
library for parsing XLS files, such as freexl .
The downside will be the usual one of anything depending on cgo.
You could also do a favor to the community and port such a library to
native Go ;-)
