in thread It LOOKS right...

If the #! line isn't correct then your code will be passed to /bin/sh, not Perl


$ sh: ./ 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

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

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

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

The error the OP gave is indeed from perl.
