Making a Perl script an executable, I think.
O.K., I just started learning Perl and am trying to do a "Hello , world" program. I'm using Perl, v5.8.6 on Fedora Core 2. The code I am doing is this...
print "Hello , world!\n";
chmod a+x helloword
And I am getting the "permission denied" message in the shell when I try to run it. So I am guessing it is the chmod line that is wrong. I've tried changing it around, but I either get the same message or the "no such file" message when I really screwed around with it. So do I have a syntax error here, or is something going wrong elsewere? Because I really do not know what else I can try.
