Hi,

When I try to run a Perl script first.pl by typing at the prompt :
first.pl

I have the following issue :

first.pl : Command not found

Thanks the which command I determined the location of Perl so my script is as below :

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

($user) = @ARGV;

print "Hello $user\n";

If I write at the prompt :
perl first.pl

I don't have the issue.

Any ideas,
Thanks in advance

OK,

It wasn't a right issue because I previously set the execution right, it was ./.

Can you explain me why I should put it ?

Thanks in advance
