Also, if the file has been edited on a Windows machine it can sometimes
tack ^V^M characters on the end of each line, so #!/bin/sh becomes
#!/bin/sh^V^M and as the ctrl-v/ctrl-m characters are special, and
hidden by default on most editors, it can create a really hard to find
The symptoms are it cant find the interpreter, even though to the naked
eye, it seems correct.
Removing ctrl-v/ctrl-m characters is a simple regex, or alternatively
look to google for the regex.
