If you wanted to do pattern matching:

my $oldfile = 'file1'; my $newfile =~ s/$/.rtf/; # Search for the end of a string and # replace it with the extension

    UPDATE: Sorry, I just realized I made a mistake, should have written like this:
    my $file = 'file1'; $file =~ s/$/.rtf/; # $file will now contain the .rtf extension
