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.
