Need to be +x , not + x !

try get shell( "ls -l" ) then.
you should see in something like this :
-rw-rw-r-- 1 thierry thierry 2979 Feb 5 2007 rev2perlInit.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 thierry thierry 2559 Mar 28 2007 ToCopyInStack.dat
-rwxrwxrwx 1 thierry thierry 3797 Mar 28 2007 TranslatePm2c.pl
-rw-r--r-- 1 thierry thierry 577 Feb 2 2007 rev2perl.c
1st 3 letters for user, next 3 for group, last 3 for others.
On my samples, you can see that TranslatePm2c.pl can be executed by all,
but not the other files.
