Despite your lack of cooperation I'm going to assume it's either a file permissions issue or a incorrect command issue. So don't start crying when these don't fix your problem.

The file you are trying to run must be 'marked' as executable. This can be done by chmod +x <file name>.

If you are typing the file name as the command to execute this is likely wrong, you (usually) need to prefix it with ./. making the command you need to run ./<filename>. This is only the case if you are currently in the programs working directory, other wise it can be excluded.
