tandx has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I tried to use ppm to install Bioperl-Run package, but got the following message:

ERROR: Can't extract to C:\DOCUME~1\lxu\LOCALS~1\Temp\ppm-jidlU0/BioPerl-Run-1.006000_001.0.0/blib/man3/Bio::Factory::EMBOSS.3

Please help me to fix the problem. Thanks.

    I would have thought that can only be a packaging error.

    As far as I know there is no way to name a file with embedded colons: Bio::Factory::EMBOSS.3 on Windows. You should probably report the problem to whichever repository you downloaded the package from.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
