its your path. the shell can't find the script.
either launch it like this:
or add . to your path

in bash:
export PATH=.:$PATH
- /usr/bin is the Solaris location. not sure about linux location

in csh
set path=( . $path )

(hash and rehash force OS to re-evaluate the internal directory tables.)

Then try the script again
