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.

[ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
[Discipulus]: no ambrus by specification i mean for example license per core instead of per socket, so fields are different
