in thread Installing Perl 5.10.0: problems with ./Configure

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.
