Shebangs is meaningful only on the first 2 bytes in the first line of a file.

#!/usr/bin/perl print "hi\n";

call that prog "hi" and try to chmod +x on it and run it. It will work fine. (of course assuming the path to perl is correct) Now add a blank line above #!. Try to run this again. What do you see? Also try to add a space before shebang. what happens now?

Vim is not looking to see if the shebang is on the first line or not. That's why it is coloring it.

In short, that line is just a comment if it is in the middle of the code. -SK

Update: Please see ysth's reply on how shebang can have other stuff before it.

    [1nickt]: Wow. I had heard about the chips on HP cartriddges but not that issue. I rejected HP's equivalent laptop becuase of build quality, very plasticky keyboard. And I believe HP is the champon of bloatware, too.
    [stevieb]: Perhaps my experience with HP is a bit different as I always bought the highest end models through business.
    [Corion]: 1nickt: At least the machines that $work is introducing to replace the Lenovo T60 here do not inspire confidence with me
