brian at gottlob:~/test$ ls -la shebangtest.py
-rwxr-xr-- 1 brian brian 68 2006-11-04 02:29 shebangtest.py

so the file is called shebangtest.py...

> brian at gottlob:~/test$ shebangtest
> bash: shebangtest: command not found

but you try to run shebangtest...

bash can't find the file. you didn't put the .py on the end
Also you may not have . in your path. For security reasons it isn't 
there by default.


brian at gottlob:~/test$ ./shebangtest.py
