Actually it does work. You will get a
Unquoted string "strftime" may clash with future reserved word
when trying to print that filehandle, but that's opnly a warning.
Otherwise $send_data is assigned '1' just as I would have expected.
Now, the OP might have expected something different, but unfortunately
he forgot to tell us what he expected to happen. As well as what
deviating behaviour he was observing.
Since the OP asked only about "this string", the value of $send_data
doesn't matter. The only string in the code other than the filehandle
which appears to be the programming equivalent of a mixed metaphor. It might
want to be a list or it might want to be a date format, or it might want to be
an advertisement for Airtel, but its hopes will be dashed.
