What shell is giving you the problem? Can you provide the exact text of 
the error message?  Is it possible that your shebang line was changed to 
"#!/usr/bin/per1" (note the numeral one at the end of the line).  When I 
tried this under bash on Debian I got the message "-bash: ./shebang.pl: 
/usr/bin/per1: bad interpreter: No such file or directory".
