in reply to /usr/bin/perl^M: bad interpreter:

The comments on that page mention that same error. The resolution provided is to run the dos2unix /usr/local/bin/sr_server.dat command.

Windows and Unix systems use different end-of-line characters. The ^M bit you're seeing is from a Windows system, and isn't needed on the Unix system.
