In recent debian Graph::Easy 0.75, a bit of code use Graph::Easy::Parser; my $parser = Graph::Easy::Parser->new (fatal_errors => 0); my $graph = $parser->from_text('bogus'); print defined $graph ? $graph : "undef", "\n"; prints Graph::Easy=HASH(0x89d6560) but the Graph::Easy::Parser docs under from_text() say Returns undef for error, you can find out what the error was with error(). which made me think the code would print undef. I suppose the code behaviour could be justified by reckoning it gives as much of the input as it could successfully read, when fatal_errors is false. Either way the docs could note the return is for fatal_errors false, since of course for the default fatal_errors true croaks.
