 * A text extractor for Excel files, that is based
 *  on the HSSF EventUserModel API.
 * It will typically use less memory than
 *  {@link ExcelExtractor}, but may not provide
 *  the same richness of formatting.
 * Returns the textual content of the file, suitable for
 *  indexing by something like Lucene, but not really
 *  intended for display to the user.
 * <p>
 * To turn an excel file into a CSV or similar, then see
 *  the XLS2CSVmra example
 * </p>
 * @see <a href="http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/poi/trunk/src/examples/src/org/apache/poi/hssf/eventusermodel/examples/XLS2CSVmra.java">XLS2CSVmra</a>
