Subject: Extract directory makes module unusable on Win32

All the files in your module .tgz are in a subdirectory called 'Bio::Polloc-1.0503'. Because : is an invalid file name character on Windows (reserved for drive letter), installation fails as follows: [MSG] Trying to get '' [MSG] Using cached file 'C:\perl\cpanplus\authors\id\L\LR\LRR\CHECKSUMS' on disk; ttl (3600s) is not exceeded [MSG] Checksum matches for 'Polloc-1.5.3b.tgz' Unable to read 'C:\perl\cpanplus\authors\id\L\LR\LRR\Polloc-1.5.3b.tgz': Could not create directory 'C:\perl\cpanplus\5.12.3\build\Bio::Polloc- 1.0503' for 'Bio::Polloc-1.0503': mkdir C:\perl\cpanplus\5.12.3\build\Bio::.: Invalid argument; The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect at C:/perl/perl/lib/Archive/Tar/ line 458 at C:/perl/perl/lib/CPANPLUS/Internals/ line 158 Error listing contents of archive 'C:\perl\cpanplus\authors\id\L\LR\LRR\Polloc-1.5.3b.tgz': at C:/perl/perl/lib/CPANPLUS/Internals/ line 158 Renaming the directory to Bio-Polloc-1.0503 (as is the custom for CPAN modules) will probably help.
