It's not the actual "Hello World" statement that I'm asking about. It's the error message I'm getting.

    If the #! line isn't correct then your code will be passed to /bin/sh, not Perl, and that's what produced the error messages.

      No.

      $ a.pl sh: ./a.pl: usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

      and that's what produced the error messages.

      No. If the error messages originated from sh, they would look like

      $ . a.pl sh: =: command not found sh: ./a.pl: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `{' sh: ./a.pl: line 3: `if ($count <= 20) {'

      or (requires changing shebang to #!/bin/sh)

      $ a.pl ./a.pl: line 2: =: command not found ./a.pl: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `{' ./a.pl: line 3: `if ($count <= 20) {'

      The error the OP gave is indeed from perl.

    When I run your program, pasted to a file test.pl, as ./test.pl on my system (Debian Linux) I get:

    bash: ./test.pl: usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: No such file or direct +ory

    If I run it as perl test.pl I get:

    Hello World!

    So, I wonder what system you are running it on and how you are running it.
