Determining if a filename is greater than X characters

One last question and then I'll leave you guys alone for awhile: How 
would I append a string to the end of each file that I've truncated? I'd 
like to put '.txt' on the end, but I don't understand how to go about 
it. When I tried this:

  old_fname = files
  new_fname = old_fname.append('.txt')

.txt was added as a string to the files list. Researching a bit on 
Google told me that in Python strings are unchangeable. So, how would I 
go about changing a string?

Thanks!!!
