in reply to perl file doesn't execute

You leave a lot to interpretation. If you want useful answers how about:

  • Showing us your code.
  • What permissions you stored the file as
  • what was the original name?
  • What is you script trying to accomplish and is failing at?

    This is solid advice and I up voted your post. If I could give it two votes, I would!

    I have cygwin (a different Perl) on my Windows machine and also an Active State Perl. I strongly recommend a simple "hello world" program and getting that working.

    Showing code is important! The OP should get something simple working and then we can talk about getting something more complex working.

      Thanks, the file which I am using is having more than 1000 lines which is actually related to testing. Sorry for that I can't help on providing the code.. but i will surely give a simple code which will come across this problem.
