read() is called by new(). It does the actual reading of the config file.

If the file can't be read, die is called.

The path to the config file is determined by:

        File::Spec -> catfile(File::HomeDir -> my_dist_config('GraphViz2'), '.htgraphviz2.conf');

During installation, you should have run scripts/, which uses the same code, to move the config file from the config/ directory in the disto into an OS-dependent directory.

The run-time code uses this module to look in the same directory as used by scripts/
