It would be better to adjust your script to point to /usr/bin/perl.
If you need the script to run on various systems where perl might be
in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin or somewhere else in the path, you could
also use /usr/bin/env perl or (I think) just perl.

All of this is on the first line of the perl script you're trying to
run, aka the shellbang, shebang, hashbang, etc.  It needs to start
with #!.  So one of these should work:

#!/usr/bin/perl
#!/usr/bin/env perl
#!perl
