Can you elaborate? Why is opening into a scalar better than opening into
a file handle?
Furthermore, my initial question still goes unanswered

Why would you want to teach that? Are your students archaeologists?

I show the "old way to open files" (aka 2 parameters and FILEHANDLEs)
at the end of the chapter about files and then tell them they should not
use it and also explain why.

And I still see many of them use it.
