PyCharm. /usr/bin/python^M: bad interpreter

The issue is not EOF but EOL. The shell sees a ^M as well as the end of line and thus tries to find /usr/bin/python^M .

The usual way of getting into this state is to edit the python file with a MSDOS/Windows editor and then run on Unix. The simplest fix is to run dos2unix on the file or edit the file in an editor that explicitly allows saving with Unix end of lines.

Set line separator to Unix:


PyCharm. /usr/bin/python^M: bad interpreter

You may find the answers here: ./configure : /bin/sh^M : bad interpreter

As a Mac OS X user, I didnt find the command dos2unix. Alternatively, I use vi/vim: :set fileformat=unix and then save the file :wq
