This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

My SCO Unix system doesn't recognize files starting with #!

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

Unix 3.2v4.0 through 3.2v4.2 include a parameter to determine whether the kernel supports the use of #! to denote the interpreter for a particular script, but it is not tuneable using the standard configure program. Instead, edit the file /etc/conf/pack.d/kernel/space.c and change the hashplingenable setting from 0 to 1. Rebuild and install the new kernel.
