A feature of use

Look at the following snippet.

perl -e 'open strict, ">&", STDOUT or die; use strict; print strict fo +obar, "\n";'

This prints foobar so clearly foobar is interpretted as a bareword. However, we use strict, so that should disallow barewords. Why is this? (The title of the post can give a hint.)

    In fact, even this works.

    perl -e 'if (0) { open strict; } use strict; print STDOUT foobar, "\n" +;'
