Hey, Dave, Using 1.56, if I run: use strict; use warnings; use DateTime; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; my $parser = DateTime::Format::Strptime->new ( pattern => '%a %b %d %T %Y', time_zone => DateTime->now->time_zone ) or die "Couldn't parse pattern"; my $datetime = $parser->parse_datetime( 'Wed Feb 29 12:02:28 2013' ); I end up with an undefined result---which is unsurprising since it's a nonsensical date. If I run it with 1.61, I get: Can't call method "day_of_week_0" on an undefined value at /home/utils/perl5/perlbrew/perls/5.22.0-007/lib/site_perl/5.22.0/DateTime/Format/ line 760. That seems a little...punitive. Mike. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This email message is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential information.

This is definitely a bug. This module should never throw exceptions when it can't parse things unless you've asked it do so.
