I had a file named "testnow.txt" and i want to make this file 95 copies.. in the same folder
i want to duplicate the "testnow.txt" and rename it like
testnow_1.txt
testnow_2.txt
testnow_3.txt
.
.
.
.
testnow_95.txt

Here is the java code that made this work, but I am not sure how to write the same logic using perl.

import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.Files;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
import java.nio.file.Path;
public class filerenametemp {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
          Path src = Paths.get("C:\\temp\\testnow.txt");
          for( int i=1;i<=6; ++i ){
            Path dest =  Paths.get("C:\\temp\\testnow_" + i + ".txt");
            try {
                Files.copy(src,dest);
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
          }
   }
}


Can some one provide me the code with same logic in perl.

Thanks,
