[bug-gawk] $'$' syntax

I am trying to build output strings from dynamic variables, e.g. name = "$j, $(j+1)", etc.  I receive syntax errors if I do not use double quotes at this point and when I try to print the value of the variable, if I use name I get $j, etc. output without transalation, if I use $name I get the whole file and if I use $'$'name I get another syntax error.  Is there a special syntax I need to use for the Windows version to get the variable to be evaluated when printed, or is this a bug ?
