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 helloworld.pl under my home folder and gave it proper permission with the command chmod a+rx helloworld.pl:

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

/opt1/home/docalvi

and in the file, i inserted the following text:


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

and I saved it as helloworld.pl

when I tried to execute the file ./helloworld.pl

I get the following error message:

./helloworld.pl: No such file or directory

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