in reply to Bad interpreters coming out

I don't get the thread title at all. How is this a case of "bad interpreters coming out"? What "interpreters"? Where do they come out? From the title, I thought this was a thread about misbehaving perl interpreters.

This is a case of CRLF line endings being generated when you expected LF (the extra character is CR, not ^M. ^M is just vim's representation of a CR character).

    I wondered that as well. My guess was that some shells report "bad interpreter" (or something similar) when a ^M (\r) appends the program path on the #! line.

    dos2unix, or s/\r//, would be my solution.
