I am trying to get $file5 to equal thing5.txt. I am having trouble assigning the variable to be a variable, followed by other text. This has to be very simple, but I have goofed it up one too many times in a row...

$name = "thing";

#$file5 = "thing5.txt";
$file5 = "$name5.txt";

print "$file5 \n";
