Running Simple Perl Script

Hi all,
I am a rookie to the Perl World. I am running sun OS 5.8, and I (created) or vi a file named under my home folder and gave it proper permission with the command chmod a+rx

-rwxr-xr-x 1 docalvi wanops 38 Nov 20 07:00


and in the file, i inserted the following text:

#!/usr/bin/perlprint "Hello World!n";

and I saved it as

when I tried to execute the file ./

I get the following error message:

./ No such file or directory

What have I done wrong? Can someone answer the question? Thx much!
