Bareword Found where operator expected

$dec93 = 93;
$ser = SERVO;
$lbit = uc(sprintf("%02x\n", $dec93));
if($lbit == 5D){
print DATA "Byte11: $fbits11=$bstr11 Bits:[95-88]\t$ser\n";

Why do I get this error?

Bareword found where operator expected at C:\Perl Scripts\ line 64, near "5D" (Missing operator before D?)

Uh, quote your 5D.

Quoting produced the following:

Argument "5D" isn't numeric in numeric eq (==) at C:\Perl Scripts\ line 64.
Argument "5D\n" isn't numeric in numeric eq (==) at C:\Perl Scripts\ line 64

but this did the trick:

if($lbit =~ /5D/)
