I think you mean
The command you're runing is /bin/env, and you're passing it the
parameter "python". This doesn't work as well as it might because some
systems put env(1) in /usr/bin or /etc (!).
Some systems are known to want a space after the bang so that they can
match the first four bytes as a magic number, but I don't think this
applies to GNU/Linux:
On GNU/Linux, the FSSTND ought to specify this: I think /usr/bin/python
should be safe because Python is standard on most distributions these
