Yes, there are multiple ways to get that statement to work. You could also use parentheses, do your logic beforehand and put it in a variable, or write the code in countless other ways.

But it still proves that in some cases even the compiler can't tell whether there is a filehandle (ok, ok, a variable containing a filehandle reference) or an ordinary variable at the start of a print statement.

This may be a single contrived example (though it is nothing unusual really), but the set of cases in which the statement will not be clear to the human eye is much larger.
