Pollux - Low level library for Excel and Word files

Excel and Word interoperation works well for use cases where file sizes are limited and the performance overhead for the interoperation between the F# runtime and the Office application is acceptable. For production scenarios beyond these constraints, this low level library for manipulating Excel and Word files directly has been proven to be helpful.

This is a Babylonian clay tablet from around 1700 BC known as “YBC7289” of the Yale Babylonian Collection. It is a diagram of a square with one side marked as having length $1/2$. The diagonal is annotated with the numbers $1,$ $24,$ $51,$ $10,$ indicating the approximation of $$\sqrt 2 \approx 1 + \frac{24}{60} + \frac{51}{60^2} + \frac{10}{60^3}$$ with five digits precision. For a nice summary of the math behind refer e.g. to John Baez.
