( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Maybe this is actually a shell script issue, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this (reputation suggests maybe it is?!)

I edited the Configure file so that it read:
#! /bin/sh echo hi there
Then created an identical file from scratch, in the same directory, worked completely as expected (printed "hi there" on the command line), but the Configure file did this:
./Configure: command not found

sh ./Configure
: command not found2:
: command not found3:
hi there
: command not found5:

I found this which talks (near the bottom) about 'DOS style line breaks'. Could this be the problem? If this is not a suitable place for this question, then I'll ask elsewhere (any suggestions?) but I'd appreciate some (more) monkish wisdom if anyone has any..

Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
