in reply to Dynamic Variable Names?

You can create variables dynamically, true. But that's not actually what you need here. When ever you have a series of scalars with trailing integers, use an array, and then you can access the array elements in your for loop. Also, using foreach is more idiomatic (which is a fancy word for "better written")

@foo = ('foo0', 'foo1', 'foo2', 'foo3'); foreach $member (@foo) { push @fee, $member; }
